Digital Broadcast Journalist
Sharmeen Somani is a network reporter for Global News. You can catch her on Global News Weekend every Saturday and Sunday with some of your top national stories of the day. During the week she reports on national and international stories for the network that air across Canada in various markets, on our 24/7 Global TV app, on the web and on our YouTube channel.
Sharmeen has been with Global News since 2017. She started off at Global Kingston as a local news reporter, where she also had the chance to fill in as a weather specialist and co-host The Morning Show on CKWS. About a year and a half later, she joined the original online video team, where she put together original stories from around the world for Global’s digital platforms. She landed her role as a digital broadcast journalist for the network in July 2020.
Always being versatile, she learned the ins and outs of a newsroom at CTV London. During her three and a half years there, she edited stories, built and took graphics to air, worked the audio boards and filled in on the writing, assignment and weather anchor desks.
Sharmeen spent some of her most memorable years at Wilfrid Laurier University, where she received her B.A. in communication studies. She got her postgrad in broadcast journalism at Seneca College in Toronto.
In her free time, Sharmeen loves spending time with her family and friends, being outdoors, taking dance and hot yoga classes and travelling.
