Miranda is thrilled to be part of the Global Toronto news team. Her passion is meeting those with an important story to tell and being able to share those stories with the city she loves.
Miranda has years of experience working in newsrooms across the country and internationally. She joins Global News from Bell Media where she worked as a reporter at CTV Toronto and CP24 for four years covering major breaking news stories including the Jian Ghomeshi trial, the Bombay Bhel restaurant explosion, travelling to Kingston to report on Gord Downie’s death and delivering hours of live coverage during the Raptors’ historic championship win.
Prior to Toronto, Miranda co-anchored the evening news at CHCH in Hamilton and also worked as a reporter. She started her career in Medicine Hat, Alta., as a reporter and fill-in anchor at CHAT-TV and was part of the RTDNA award-winning news team providing on the ground coverage of the devastating floods. Miranda has also worked in newsrooms in Brazil and California.
Miranda has a B.A. Honours from Queen’s University and earned a post-graduate degree from Humber College.
Born in London, England and raised in Toronto, Miranda considers both cities home. When not out in the field, Miranda can be found travelling as much as possible, practicing her Spanish, and spending time with family and friends – preferably at the cottage, on a dance floor, or at home with her cats.
