Margeaux Maron (née Morin) is Global Edmonton’s dedicated community reporter focused on bringing community, municipal, and local business’ events and initiatives to our audiences.
Born and raised in Edmonton, Margeaux has enjoyed some unique experiences in our city. One of them being a member of the Edmonton Eskimos Cheer Team for several years.
Her passion for sports and entertainment led her to her first media gig in 2009, when she was asked to co-host a Shaw TV show called The Green and Gold Gridiron Show with Chris Scheetz from CISN Country. Margeaux and Chris hosted that show for three seasons, and it was a gig that would lead Margeaux to explore working in media as a full-time career.
As if she wasn’t busy enough, attending the Alberta School of Business, and working in marketing full time, Margeaux took on a new role with the Edmonton Oilers. The Edmonton Oilers Octane Cheer Team launched in 2010, and Margeaux acted as the assistant coach and choreographer for three seasons.
Longing to further her career in media, Margeaux made the move to New York City where she enrolled in a Broadcast Journalism program at the New York Film Academy. This would complement the Bachelor of Commerce degree that she later received from the University of Alberta.
Margeaux’s first full-time media job was with the Calgary Stampede, where she produced and appeared in content for the Stampede’s YouTube channel. In June of 2013, the Southern Alberta floods devastated the Calgary Stampede Park. Margeaux was one of the first videographers on-site to capture that historic event.
Her content was later aired on major television networks throughout North America and caught the attention of The Weather Network, which later offered Margeaux a job as a video journalist covering weather events across Western Canada. Floods, blizzards and catastrophic hail events were a regular part of her beat, and soon enough, Global Edmonton had its eye on Margeaux as their newest weather specialist.
After two and a half years with Global Edmonton, Margeaux had big news — she was pregnant! While enjoying maternity leave with her son Cash, Margeaux was offered her new role allowing her to focus her story telling efforts on the ideas and events that make Edmonton a great place to live.
As a lifelong learner, Margeaux is also enrolled part-time in the MBA program at the University of Alberta where she plans to specialize in public policy and management.
