Mark Carcasole brings his enthusiasm for current affairs and politics to Global Toronto’s News Hour.
Carcasole joined Global Toronto as a reporter in 2012 but started his journalism career in 2005 as an anchor and news reporter for NewsTalk 1010. While there, he reported on various topics, from crime to provincial politics. In addition to his work at NewsTalk, in 2006 Carcasole also wrote for the online music and video magazine, Scene and Heard.
As part of the Global Toronto team, Carcasole covers hard-hitting stories, including the death of a child at an unlicensed Toronto daycare centre in 2014, and the high-profile sexual assault case of anesthesiologist, Dr. George Doodnaught. In late 2013, he reported on the extensive ice storm damage in Toronto and the plight of many city residents, forced to go without heat for weeks when winter temperatures were at their coldest.
Carcasole has received several RTDNA (Radio Television Digital News Association) awards, including two Ron Laidlaw Awards for Best Continuing coverage: one for the TTC Contract Collapse in 2009, and the second for the Jordan Manners murder. In 2007, he received The Edward R. Murrow Award for Spot News Coverage for the Caledonia Standoff, a First Nations dispute over Ontario land claims. He also received three New York Festivals Awards in 2007-08: two for Best Breaking News Coverage for the Caledonia Standoff and the Jordan Manners murder, and one for Best Ongoing News Coverage for the Jordan Manners murder.
Carcasole graduated with honours from the Radio Broadcasting program at Humber College in 2005.
When he’s not covering the news, Carcasole enjoys making music in his home studio and loves movies. A big fan of hockey, Carcasole plays and watches whenever he can.
