Now based in Toronto, Adrienne Arsenault was previously CBC-TV's London correspondent, a position she took up in the fall of 2006 after having spent three and a half years in Jerusalem. Before that, Washington, D.C. was home for two and a half years. Adrienne has also, at times, called Vancouver and Toronto her "home base" in her various postings with the CBC. She joined the CBC in 1991 as an editorial assistant.
Over the years, and across the continents, Arsenault's assignments have included disasters, conflicts, politics, sports and basic human dramas. She has won and been nominated for several Gemini awards, was named the Commonwealth Broadcasting Association's journalist of the year in 2005, picked up a Gracie award for outstanding female correspondent and a Monte Carlo festival award for her coverage of the Zimbabwe election.
