GLOBAL NEWS WELCOMES THE RETURN OF CANDACE DANIEL IN DUAL ANCHOR AND PRODUCER ROLE

Daniel Joins Global Toronto on Monday, January 18

TORONTO, January 7, 2021 – Global News is pleased to announce the return of news anchor Candace Daniel to the Global family. Daniel, who started her journalism career with the network, will join Global Toronto as the new co-anchor/producer of Global News Morning and the News at Noon. Daniel begins her new role January 18.

“I am so excited to return to Global News, and the hardworking team I already know and love,” said Candace Daniel. “I’m looking forward to sharing the perspective I’ve gained from my time working in other regions across Canada and connecting with viewers.”

Initially an intern with Global Toronto, Daniel was promptly hired as an Associate Producer with Global National, the flagship newscast for the network. After more than five years in the Global National Toronto bureau, Daniel moved to Saskatchewan where she held Weather Anchor and News Anchor roles with Global Regina. Most recently, she has served as Evening News Anchor for CTV News Barrie.

“We are thrilled to welcome Candace back to Global,” said Alexandra Henderson, VP News, Local Stations, Global News. “Candace is an exceptional broadcast journalist with a proven track record across multiple markets. Returning to her hometown, our audience will benefit greatly from the deep familiarity she’ll bring to local stories and issues every day.”

A first generation Canadian born to Bajan and Trinidadian parents, Daniel was born in Toronto and raised in both Scarborough and the neighbouring suburb of Pickering. A graduate of Centennial College, Daniel – who began her professional career working for local government – was inspired to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a reporter by a family member’s cancer diagnosis, pressing home the precariousness of life.
