Mike Le Couteur
Global National Ottawa Correspondent
Mike Le Couteur officially joined the Global National family in October 2011, but he has been a frequent contributor to the program over the past several years.
He started filling in as a correspondent when the Dawson College shooting in 2006 thrust the local reporter onto the national stage.
Mike’s vast experience in covering countless provincial and federal elections serves him well as he now reports from Parliament Hill for Global National.
Since joining the National team, Mike has been on the front lines of history, covering stories like Superstorm Sandy in New York and New Jersey, the Lac-Mégantic train disaster and the shooting on Parliament Hill.
His tenacious style has also led him to break several stories in the Senate spending scandal that has been gripping the upper chamber for years.
Born and raised in Montreal, Mike studied broadcast journalism at Concordia University.
He jumped into the Global Montreal newsroom right after his schooling…literally.
His first shift was the same day as his last exam.
For the next 12 years, Mike would go on to be front and centre covering Quebec’s biggest stories, such as overpass collapses, to playoff riots and floods.
He has also contributed to Global’s weekly newsmagazine 16×9, putting together a story on Capt. Brian Bews, the CF-18 pilot who narrowly escaped death at an air show in Lethbridge, Alberta July 2010.
Off camera, Mike is known by his colleagues for his razor sharp wit.
