Host, Global News Morning
Shannon Cuciz grew up performing on stage as an actor and on tennis courts as a Team Canada athlete. After spending her teenage years competing at international tournaments, she started to enjoy her homeschool writing assignments more than tennis. This led her to study journalism at Ryerson University in Toronto, then language at Konstanz University in Germany on scholarship.
Cuciz initially moved to Winnipeg for a job as a sports feature reporter but quickly fell in love with the variety of stories shared on morning television. Just after her 24th birthday she became the host of Global News Morning, a live three-hour weekday news talk show. When she isn’t hosting, Cuciz writes and shares women’s stories. She also created an inspiring series called Obstacles That Shapes Us focusing on Canadians overcoming adversity.
Three years of interviews with actors, directors and filmmakers on the morning show rekindled Cuciz’s passion for the arts. When she’s not planning travels to different parts of the world she is exploring Winnipeg’s vibrant arts scene, often watching local performances and films.
