Mandy Vocke joined the Global Saskatoon team in September 2019.
She graduated from SAIT’s Broadcast News program and received a bachelor of communications from the University of Calgary in 2019. She competed on SAIT’s cross-country and track and field teams, so she’s always ready to chase after any news story.
Mandy started her journalism career in Prince George, B.C., as a weekend reporter and anchor at CKPG News. Telling the personal stories of people in northern B.C. was very rewarding for her.
She enjoys being part of the community in any way she can. She spent many years volunteering at Best Buddies, an organization that builds friendships between people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities. She also volunteered at Big Brothers Big Sisters while she was in Prince George.
Whenever she has free time, Mandy loves trying out restaurants in the city. She’s a self-proclaimed french fry connoisseur and is currently on the hunt for Saskatoon’s best fries.
