Nancy Carlson anchors Global News at 11 weeknights on Global Edmonton, and is also co-hosting Global News Hour 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 News 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. It is a privilege to tell people’s stories,” she says.
When Nancy isn’t at the station you can find her representing Global Edmonton in the community. She’s been involved with numerous organizations including HIV Edmonton and Habitat for Humanity.
Before Nancy heads into work each day she’s either training for her next marathon or baking cookies.
She also enjoys relaxing with a book, her cat Oliver, and a bottomless cup of coffee.
