Kendra Slugoski

Kendra Slugoski is a seasoned journalist at Global Edmonton, most recently shifting from daily reporting to covering the Family Matters beat in 2021.

Kendra came to Edmonton thinking it would be a pit stop before moving on, but she quickly grew to love the city. The river valley, running trails and dog park are some of her favourite places to escape.

Kendra grew up in northern Manitoba. She was born in a small town called Snow Lake; her family eventually moved to Flin Flon: home of hockey great Bobby Clarke. Kendra tries to make the 11-hour drive to Flin Flon a couple times a year to visit, but travelling with children and a dog make for a long road trip!

Kendra completed her diploma at Assiniboine Community College and started her broadcasting journey in Brandon, MB at the local news station (CKX) before moving to a reporter position at Global Saskatoon. She then moved to Calgary, where she worked for a few years before deciding to take a year off to travel. During her year abroad she visited Australia, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia.

Kendra is passionate about telling a compelling story. After two decades in journalism, it still amazes her how people open up their lives and share their personal experiences.

Outside of work Kendra tries to stay active, and loves running and spending time outdoors.

Kendra is married with two young boys who keep her busy before and after work hours.
