Timm Bruch joined CTV Calgary in the fall of 2019. Before joining the team in Cowtown, he reported in Edmonton, Winnipeg, and Kelowna – which means he’s seen just about every side of the weather spectrum.
Timm was born in Calgary and has also spent time on the West Coast: he attended BCIT’s Broadcast Journalism program in Burnaby – where he graduated with honors -- and spent his early twenties in Vancouver.
His first full-time television job was a stint in the Okanagan where he reported on organic vineyards, flooding beaches and an unlucky neighbourhood cat who was shot by a stray bullet.
From there, he grabbed his winter running gear and shipped off to Winnipeg, where he covered strange stories (a course for beginner pilots where Timm actually got behind the controls of a small plane), hard news (police standoffs, court reporting), and downright-terrifying segments (live television while rappelling down the side of a downtown building). Eventually, Timm found a niche in politics. He's loved covering elections, budgets and even a scandal or two.
Timm signed on to the CTV News team in 2018. He spent his first year with the company in Edmonton, much of it at the Legislature turning his mic towards provincial politicians. While based out of YEG, Timm’s highlights include the lead up to the 2019 election and a busy wildfire season that sent him on an extended trip to Northern Alberta.
In 2019, he made his way back to Calgary. He couldn’t be happier telling stories about the city he was born in.
In his spare time, you can find Timm on running trails, watching his beloved Blue Jays or listening to a record from his overflowing collection.
Timm speaks English.
