Marney Blunt is an anchor for Global News and the host/producer of Focus Saskatchewan.
She grew up in Manitoba and is a graduate of the Creative Communications joint-degree program at the University of Winnipeg and Red River College.
Marney worked at various local newspapers and newswires in Manitoba and Ontario before making the switch over to television news. She worked as a chase producer and back-fill reporter at CTV News Winnipeg before moving north to work as a news anchor in Dawson Creek, BC. She started at Global News in June 2017.
Marney has covered several prominent stories for television, radio, and online, including the Humboldt Broncos hockey tragedy, the 2018 Saskatchewan Party leadership race, general elections in BC and Manitoba, natural disasters in BC, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba including wildfires, floods, and drought, and several court cases in both Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
Her most memorable story was a Remembrance Day feature on a World War 2 veteran that she wrote for a newspaper early in her career. That story resulted in two World War 2 veterans on the same squadron being reunited 70 years later.
In her spare time, Marney can be found doing anything outdoors. She loves fishing, snowboarding, hiking, spending time at the family cottage in the Whiteshell Provincial Park and looking after her horse. She also enjoys listening to Tom Petty and attending as many classic rock concerts as she possibly can.
