Roberta Bell is a Digital Broadcast Journalist with Global Regina.
Passionate about the role of journalism in society, she is always interested in hearing people’s untold stories and truly believes that everybody has something important to say.
Roberta cares deeply about social justice, especially as it pertains to Indigenous peoples in Canada and minority rights.
A graduate of the University of Toronto’s international relations program and Carleton University’s journalism school, Roberta began her career at a daily newspaper in south-central Ontario. It was there she came to appreciate the value of local news while covering city hall.
Before joining Global, she reported for the CBC — most recently from Edmonton. She was fortunate to have the opportunity to work on in-depth long-form broadcast and digital features under the guidance of some of Alberta’s top journalists. Her work alongside them earned regional and national recognition from the RTDNA.
Roberta and her family are excited to have the chance to explore Saskatchewan and learn more about the communities and cultures.
