Host, Global News Morning
Shannon Cuciz started hosting Global News Morning in Winnipeg in 2016. She interviews people from all walks of life on live television every weekday from 6-9 a.m. and presents the news of the day. Before this she reported and anchored sports for the 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts, covering events such as the Winnipeg Jets first playoff berth in 19 years and the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Some of her morning show highlights include launching an animal adoption segment ‘Adopt a Pal’ which has helped more than 100 rescue dogs find forever homes, jumping out of a plane with the Canadian Forces Skyhawks, and rappelling down a 272-foot building to raise awareness for the charity Easter Seals.
Cuciz is passionate about producing, writing and hosting original content. Her feature stories have focused on the terrifying reality of child sexual exploitation in Canada and body image. She also created an inspiring online series called Obstacles That Shape Us which profiled various Canadians overcoming adversity, and a food series, Recipe Reveal, showcasing Winnipeg’s diverse culinary scene.
Prior to joining the Global News team, Cuciz studied journalism at Ryerson University in Toronto. She was raised near Vancouver and spent her teenage years competing at international tennis tournaments, often for Team Canada.
