Jill Morgan

CBC Saskatchewan is getting a new TV news anchor and she's a familiar face to many in the province.

Jill Morgan, longtime news host at Global Regina, is joining CBC as anchor of the newcasts at 5:30, 6 and 11. She'll make her debut on air later this summer.

"I am looking forward to this new opportunity at CBC to connect with people across the province each night," Morgan said in a news release.

Raised in Melfort, Morgan became supper-hour anchor at Global Regina in 2001.

Morgan takes over from longtime CBC Saskatchewan anchor Costa Maragos, who retired in March.
