Travis Lowe
Video Journalist

Travis Lowe has been a part of the Global Okanagan family for more than 30 years, joining the station (then CHBC) after moving from Toronto in 1991.

In his three decades at Global, Travis has helped the station win several prestigious awards for his coverage of high-profile news stories from up and down the Okanagan Valley.

The 2003 Okanagan Mountain Park fire was one of those stories, where he feels he cut his teeth as a news cameraperson.

Travis brought viewers the first footage of significant damage to the Crawford Estates neighbourhood by going behind the fire lines, and capturing video of destroyed homes.

“People were banging on the door of the television station, asking us to show them the footage I shot so they could see if their homes had survived or if they had lost everything in the fire.”

In 2016, Travis moved from behind the camera to in front of it, becoming one of the station’s first video journalists.

Today, he splits his time as an on-air host and production camera and gathers drone footage for the station from across the region.

When he’s in front of the camera, Travis is helping to continue the station’s long-standing tradition of covering local sports by highlighting Okanagan hockey with BCHL coverage and the WHL’s Kelowna Rockets with The Rocket Report.

He also prides himself on producing his own feature segments including what he considers some of his best work at Global, the Okanagan Parks and Places series.

Whether it’s in front or behind the camera, Travis Lowe is committed to providing visually compelling storytelling.
