Megan Robinson brings over a decade of broadcast experience, and a passion for storytelling, to Global News as a sports anchor and investigative journalist. Her work has made her a multiple RTDNA nominee. The latest honour coming in the form of a Network RTDNA Award nomination for Best Sports Feature Reporting for her 2018 Global National investigation into the long-simmering labour dispute between the Canadian Lacrosse Association and its players.
Robinson joined Global News in 2015 as a sports anchor but has since become part of the Investigative Team, eager to seek the truth, spark conversations, and report on stories that impact Canadians.
From 2008-2015, Robinson worked in Calgary and Toronto, covering sports and news as part of two RTDNA award-winning broadcast teams, which included coverage of the 2013 Alberta Floods. She has two RTDNA nominations for her own reporting during this time frame.
Robinson has worked in both radio and television as an anchor, show host, sports commentator and beat reporter. Her broadcast experience dates back to the age of 15, when Robinson started her career as a volunteer at a Toronto radio station. She is a graduate from the Radio and Television Arts program at Ryerson University and calls Toronto home.
When she’s not working, Robinson enjoys travelling to hike, camp, and climb mountains. She recently spent five weeks in remote areas of Patagonia in Chile and Argentina.
