Digital Broadcast Journalist
Jonathan Guignard joined the Global Regina team in December 2017.
He was originally hired to fill a six-month paternity leave as a cameraman, but as that job came to end, he joined the online team in a permanent role.
Not only did the position provide job security, but it also opened him up to yet another opportunity.
From time to time, Jonathan fills in as a television reporter, something he has become quite fond of. It’s a role that tests all of his skills — shooting, writing and editing.
Jonathan was born in Antigonish, N.S., and lived there until he was 12 years old. From there, he and his family spent nearly four years living in Quebec City before migrating west to Lethbridge, Alta.
After graduating high school in the windy city he moved back to “La Belle Province” and spent five years living in Montreal. He returned to Alberta and went back to school.
Jonathan graduated from Lethbridge College with a Digital Communications and Media diploma in 2016. Lethbridge College not only provided Jonathan with post-secondary education, but it was also where he found his wife.
Now married for almost four years, Jonathan and his wife just welcomed Lexee into the world and are also proud parents of a pet dog named Maya and sometimes our cat Jade.
Jonathan has a strong interest in news, but you can often find him in front of a TV watching sports.
He considers himself a super fan of the Montreal Canadiens, (could be considered an obsession) the Toronto Raptors and the Toronto Blue Jays.
He’s also an avid reader of self-help books and is always preaching positivity. Jonathan is often referred to as “Jonny Karaoke” around the newsroom.
