Lynn Colliar anchors the weekend editions of Global News Morning and Global News at Noon.
She was born in Scotland, but grew up in British Columbia. Lynn holds a biology degree from Simon Fraser University.
Lynn worked at veterinary clinics as an assistant for seven years – through high school and university – which may explain her love of animals. She later became a member of the journalism program at the British Columbia Institute of Technology.
For eight years, Lynn reported on the crime beat. Her production of “A Shred of Evidence”, a half-hour special, was awarded the Excellence in News Reporting award by the British Columbia Association of Broadcasters. Lynn detailed how intricate scientific details pieced together evidence, which led to convictions in major B.C. homicides.
Lynn also co-produced, wrote and reported on an hour-long community forum entitled “kNOw more” to heighten awareness of the issue of home invasions against the elderly.
After anchoring Global BC’s Morning News for 10 years, Lynn spent a year producing and reporting a special investigative series, including a look at infertility and transgender stories – told by people with first-hand experience.
Outside of work, Lynn loves to travel (anywhere) and get outside – whether it’s road riding or hiking in the mountains with her husband Glenn, daughter Teagan, and their dog Declan.
