Quinn Phillips is a Sports Reporter/Anchor for Global News Edmonton.
Born and raised in Edmonton, Quinn grew up a fan of local sports teams. Her Dad, Rod Phillips, was the radio play-by-play man for the Edmonton Oilers and she spent her childhood at Northlands Coliseum (now Rexall Place) watching the Oilers practice and listening to the media.
Quinn took an interesting path, working on-air in Yorkton, Lethbridge, and Red Deer before leaving the television industry to work in media relations. Quinn and a colleague won an international media relations award while at the University of Alberta. She didn’t realize she missed the industry until she started filling in at Global Edmonton in September 2013.
A graduate of MacEwan’s journalism program and NAIT’s television program, her passion is reporting. The ability to tell athletes’ stories in a creative or fun way is what drives Quinn every day. She considers getting to meet new people daily as a big perk of the job.
Quinn likes to keep active working out with friends, doing yoga, or torturing herself by running stairs. Music is another big part of her life as she tries to take in as many live shows as she can. She has attended a number of music festivals including Coachella and Lollapalooza, and plans to take in many more.
