Ria Renouf has received a number of award nominations for her work as a news anchor with CKNW, and has been the station’s Assignment Editor since 2015. She began interning at the station in late 2013, and was hired before even entering her second year of school at BCIT in 2014. She graduated with her Honours Diploma of Technology in Broadcasting and Online Journalism the following year. Before journalism, she’d been considering a career in either forensics or social work, and as a result has a Bachelor of Arts from Simon Fraser University with a joint major in Sociology and Anthropology.
As a journalist, her interests include the courts, municipal politics, health, and the offbeat.
When not lost in newspapers, she’s reading lots of books and comic books, adding to her graphic novel and stationery collection, or goes for ridiculously long walks with her husband in their home city of New Westminster. A proud Filipina-Canadian, she’s also known for making the best spring rolls in the newsroom.
