Shay Galor is one of the newest members of the Global Okanagan News Team. She has dubbed herself the “Fun Reporter” and will be showcasing the best of the Okanagan region as well as the people that make up this incredible community.
Shay recently moved to Kelowna from Ontario where she worked as an Anchor/Photojournalist. She reported with a natural, authentic charm that engaged all types of audiences and had a real passion for the human interest stories that touched the community.
Shay also hosted the flagship lifestyle show Daytime Toronto and two community-based talk shows called The Bulletin Board and Your Week with Shay. In addition, Shay reported on events and activities in the community on the TV show aXis.
In her personal life, Shay is married and raising her adorable eight year old son. She loves spending time with her family snowmobiling, travelling and engaging in any foodie-related activities. As a side-note, Shay used to be a professional salsa dancer and owned one of the largest salsa dance schools in Canada.
Shay is so excited to join the Global Okanagan family and would love to hear from you about community events and activities. Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org or find her on social media at:
