CTV Morning Live Calgary Live-On-Location Host
Adriana Zhang, CTV News, Calgary

Adriana started her path in broadcast journalism after completing her Honours Bachelor of Science at the University of Toronto. Then, while studying journalism at Humber College, she found her passion for reporting and telling stories.

Her career in the news industry has taken her to different communities across Canada, including her hometown of Winnipeg, Thunder Bay, and now Calgary.

Through her different roles, she's learned to juggle many hats – from anchoring, producing, reporting, to presenting weather and traffic.

Now, as the CTV Morning Live On-Location Segment Host, Adriana enjoys introducing viewers to hidden gems across Calgary.

As a former competitive ice dancer, Adriana's words to live by are, "The show must go on", and she believes the saying couldn't be more true through her experience working in live television.

Adriana is fluent in English and Mandarin.
