For Immediate Release

WINNIPEG, July 25, 2019Global News Winnipeg is excited to welcome Lisa Dutton as the latest addition to the 6 p.m. newscast as of Tuesday, July 30. Dutton replaces longtime anchor Heather Steele, who recently celebrated her last day on-air July 12, and has joined sister radio station Global News 680 CJOB as Executive Producer.

She relocated with her family to Winnipeg in 2017.

“Lisa’s thirst for knowledge, naturally-curious nature and passion for news has brought her back to the Global News family,” said Brent Williamson, News Director, Global News Winnipeg. “Her down-to-earth relatability helped lead Global News Morning Saskatoon to #1 in the market and makes her a natural fit for our viewers and team here in Winnipeg.”

“I’m thrilled to be back at the news desk and to be working with the forward-thinking team at Global Winnipeg,” said Lisa Dutton, Global News at 6 Winnipeg Anchor. “The opportunity to connect with viewers using great storytelling has always been a passion of mine and I look forward to bringing Manitobans together by sharing their stories.”

Lisa is a proud mom of two boys and a rescue dog named Tate.
