Assignment Editor/News Anchor
Ria Renouf is an RTDNA-nominated news anchor with CKNW, and also serves as the station’s Assignment Editor. She got her start with CKNW when she was hired as a reporter in 2014 while completing the Broadcasting & Online Journalism program at BCIT. Ria graduated from the program with honours the following year. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts from SFU in Sociology and Anthropology, the result of at one point pursuing a career in social work or forensics. She previously served as the movie critic for The Jon McComb Show.
As a journalist, her interests include crime, the courts, municipal politics, health, and the offbeat.
When not lost in whatever newspaper she can get her hands on, she reads lots of books, collects comic books, graphic novels and stationery, watches movies, and goes for ridiculously long walks. A proud Filipina-Canadian, she’s also known for making the best spring rolls in the newsroom.
