Adrienne Pan is the Host of CBC News at 11

She was born and raised in Edmonton and is happy to return to her hometown after working in Winnipeg from 2003 until May 2011. She comes to us from CBC Winnipeg where she worked as a radio and TV reporter, and most recently, as the Host of CBC News Winnipeg Late Night.

She has also worked for Global Winnipeg, reporting and hosting its weeknight newscast, for Global in Lethbridge, and for A-Channel in Edmonton.

One of Adrienne's proudest moments is winning the national Radio Television News Directors Award in the Best Long Feature category for her documentary "Saving Grace: The Harry Lehotsky Story".

Lehotsky, a fierce advocate for Winnipeg's disadvantaged, devoted his life to helping others and improving his challenged neighbourhood. The 49-year old was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer in May 2006, and died that Remembrance Day.

During that six month period, Lehotsky and his family, gave Adrienne unlimited access to their lives. His courage and incredible accomplishments inspired everyone who met him.

Adrienne considers herself a huge foodie, and plans to spend much of her free time checking out the city's restaurants.

Adrienne also loves traveling whenever she gets the chance. She lived in Montreal while attending McGill University, and the city remains a favourite destination for her and her husband.
