Kirby Bourne is an award-winning journalist who has always wanted to spend her life telling stories.
A graduate of the radio and television program at NAIT, Kirby has spent time covering news, sports and entertainment for both television and radio stations across Alberta and British Columbia.
She returned to Edmonton as an anchor/reporter for 630 CHED and iNews880 in 2013 and spent just over three years delivering the news to Corus listeners.
In November 2016, Kirby made the move to the digital side of radio and now spends her days creating engaging web and video content.
In early 2017, Kirby was honoured with the Dave Rogers Award for a short feature she produced on two Metis settlements that housed people after the Fort McMurray wildfire in 2016.
