Colleen Schmidt

Senior Digital Producer

Colleen has worked for CTV News Calgary for over 20 years and as Senior Digital Producer, leads a team of other broadcast professionals in the daily delivery of CTV News’ digital and social content. She graduated with honours from SAIT’s broadcasting program and also has advanced certification in web development and design, computer science and an assortment of other interests. Colleen believes in education and that you’re never too old to learn and she is currently working her way through business management at the University of Calgary.

She is a news junkie and techno lover so her job is the perfect combination of her skills and passions. Colleen feels fortunate to be able to create content for CTV’s websites and social media accounts and also use her technical side to design, develop and expand our website, social accounts and other digital platforms.

Under her leadership, CTV Calgary received an Edward R. Murrow Award for Digital Media in 2014 and Colleen has been fortunate to share in two others during her career. She also has a little production company and has travelled through India, Nepal and a few other countries to document humanitarian relief efforts during times of crisis. She has worn most of the hats during those productions and has received a number of nominations and commendations for her work.

Colleen loves the work she does, is proud to work for CTV News and is excited for the future of news and digital, in all its forms.
