Nancy Carlson anchors News Hour Final weeknights at 11 p.m. on Global Edmonton, and is also currently co-anchoring Global News at 6 with Gord Steinke while Carole Anne Devaney is on maternity leave.
Nancy was born and raised in Edmonton. She has a Bachelor of Journalism with honours from the University of Regina and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Alberta. Her career in broadcast journalism began at CHCA in Red Deer before moving on to Global Regina and then CTV Winnipeg.
Each adventure has taught her something new about what’s important to people in different cities.
“As a journalist I am invited inside so many homes and lives, I consider it a privilege to tell people’s stories,” she says.
Before Nancy heads into work you can find her training for her next half marathon. After placing in the top 10 twice, her determination has her eyeing the top five in her next race.
She also enjoys hot yoga classes and relaxing with a book and a bottomless cup of coffee.
