Carla Turner

CTV News Edmonton

Carla Turner grew up glued to the TV, watching news with her grandpa, so it was only natural when she pursued a television career after high school.

Carla graduated with honours from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology's Radio and Television program. She spent the following winter interning as a reporter in Brandon, Manitoba at CKX Television. She landed a job as a production assistant and news writer at A-Channel Edmonton (now City Edmonton) that summer. Carla spent the next decade in the City of Champions as a videographer, news and entertainment reporter, morning traffic reporter, and weather specialist.

She's now thrilled to start her day with CTV Morning Live viewers as the traffic specialist. You can watch her weekday mornings from 5:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.

When Carla isn't mapping out the quickest routes to get around town, she is sweating it out on a spin bike; at the park with her daughters, Maddie and Ava; or in the middle of a movie marathon with her husband, Steve.
