Meet Jill Morgan, host of CBC News: Saskatchewan at 5, 5:30, & 6

What do you love about your community?

I love that it’s home. The people here are kind, generous, and talented. The charitable engine in this province is especially strong and it makes me feel like we live in a good place. As a journalist you get a little window into the lives of people in the province, you get to parachute into someone else’s world and find out what they are passionate about and what they do – I get a chance to see a lot of good in society, especially when I’m out and involved in the community.

Over the years I’ve helped out with several community events including CIBC Run for the Cure and the Credit Union Queen City Marathon, seeing all the people that have come together with one common passion and goal is so incredible to be a part of.

What do you enjoy to do most in your spare time?

There are a lot of people who work really hard to develop culture and music in this province so I especially love to enjoy the festivals here locally with my family throughout the summer. We go to a lot of concerts and shows and are lucky to travel a lot.

What has been your favourite concert?

I’m a huge country fan, my husband and I have seen Kenny Chesney live in concert 8 times.... Seeing Kenny Chesney & Tim McGraw at the Mile High Stadium in Denver Colorado would be tops for us.

Where is your favourite place to travel?

We LOVE Disney, we’ve been there five times and twice with my daughter. It’s a truly a magical place that fosters joy, creativity, imagination and storytelling. To take your kids back and see them be excited about something opens up a new perspective of excitement that is so special and creates those family bonds that are everlasting.

Why did you become a journalist?

Growing up I always had more of an interest in news than other people my age and always did well in the current events section of my social studies classes. So even as a teenager being a journalist was something I knew I was interested in. It’s nice to be able to share the life experiences of this province with everyone else, that’s what I like about television journalism especially is the ability to use video, as well as sound to tell peoples stories and to share what’s important to them and what’s going on in their community. Despite some of the sad news stories we report on every day there’s so much good too and I feel that we get to reflect that in the news business.

What are you most excited for about coming to CBC?

I love that we as journalists are advocates for the public. We are asking the questions that need to be asked, for holding others accountable but also for being accountable to the public. It’s an interesting role to play in society and I think it’s an important role to be done well and the credibility of the CBC speaks for itself – to be part of that is rewarding for me as a journalist and an exciting opportunity. The CBC newsroom has been so warm and welcoming, there is a common enthusiasm for authentic journalism here. I feel like this is going to be great chance to learn from others and also be a mentor to others as well.

I’m also looking forward to being a part of telling stories throughout the province. As a provincial broadcast we have a unique opportunity to be a part of the fabric of the entire province, what makes it interesting and what separates us but even more so what connects us.

I grew up in Melfort, which is close to Saskatoon – Some of my earliest memories of spending quality time with mom and dad was doing fun things in Saskatoon. It was a big deal to come to the city and enjoy local events like Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan and even just going for burgers at Fuddruckers. When I got a job in Regina it was a great opportunity to get to know the south part of Saskatchewan so now it’s definitely home for me.
