Erin IsfeldNews tips
Erin is a small town girl originally from Manitoba. Growing up, she was an ever curious child with a passion for community and public speaking, paving the way for a career in broadcast journalism.
Erin’s career has taken her to Calgary and Winnipeg, but in 2005, she made the move to the City of Champions and it’s been home ever since. She currently anchors CTV Edmonton News at 6 p.m. A graduate of both the University of Winnipeg and Ryerson University in Toronto, Erin also credits the city and people of Edmonton for teaching her so much.
Some of Erin’s proudest moments don’t necessarily come while sitting behind the anchor desk, but rather when she’s able to interact with Edmontonians. Every year since 2010, Erin has spearheaded the "CTV Giving Hope" campaign where CTV Edmonton viewers are encouraged to give blood at Canadian Blood Services during a month-long campaign. The inspiration came after Erin almost lost a dear friend who hemorrhaged following child birth. Plus, being a mom, Erin is deeply involved with several children's organizations including Ronald McDonald House and the Zebra Child Protection Centre.
When not at work, you'll likely find Erin on the curling ice or trying to get in a round of golf with her husband. That's a bit tougher now trying to manage the busy schedules of her son and daughter. That’s the key, though, finding a flow that marries work and family.
