Quinn Ohler anchors Global Edmonton’s Weekend News Hour and News Final. She is also a reporter. She joined Global Edmonton in September of 2011.
Prior to moving to the City of Champions, she worked her way through the ranks at Global Lethbridge, staring as a videographer in 2008 and eventually moving to the News Hour co-Anchor/Producer position.
Born and raised in Stavely, AB, she grew up on a farm, helping out her parents when she wasn’t at the skating rink. Agriculture and a love of politics eventually led her to the Communications Arts program at Lethbridge College. While attending classes and working as a professional skating coach, she landed her first broadcast job at CJOC Lethbridge in the promotions department. She eventually moved to the news department where she worked for a year as a reporter and weekend anchor.
In 2009 she was honoured to be chosen as the recipient of the “Troy Reeb Distinguished Alumni Internship” where she spent time with Global Toronto and Global National, as well as Global’s 16:9.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, skating in the winter, going to the lake in the summer, cycling, running and being outdoors.
