Shannon Johnston joined CTV Calgary in October 2019 in the role of assignment editor.
A native Calgarian and Mount Royal Broadcasting graduate, Shannon began her career as an anchor and video journalist with CTV Prince Albert back in 2002. It wasn’t long before she went to work for CTV in Regina and later at CTV Saskatoon.
As an assignment editor, Shannon has a broad knowledge of current events, with a keen interest in city hall, civic matters and stories that matter to Calgarians.
Shannon grew up watching CFCN (CTV Calgary) and is thrilled to be a part of a newsroom dedicated to telling the stories happening in her hometown.
She speaks English.
