Diana Swain

The host of CBC's The Investigators, Diana Swain is one of Canada's leading investigative journalists and CBC News' Senior Investigative correspondent.

In three decades of reporting on stories across Canada and around the globe, Diana has developed a reputation for compelling interviews and uncovering stories that Canadians care about. That work has garnered multiple awards from the leading journalism and professional associations in Canada.

Her examination of the way Canadian post-secondary institutions manage allegations of assault on campus, led to changes in legislation in several provinces, and garnered awards for Diana and her team.

Her ground-breaking investigation into Scouts Canada won the first-ever Canadian Hilman prize in 2012, as well the Prix Justica award from the Canadian Bar Association.

Diana's reporting for numerous CBC News programs has included stories as diverse as international money-laundering, sexism in the airline industry, and a look at the use of force among Canada's police departments.  

She has also reported from three Olympics: Beijing in 2008, Sochi in 2014 and Pyeonchang in 2018.

Canadians will also know Diana from her many years behind the anchor desk in Winnipeg and Toronto. She won the Gemini for Best News Anchor three times, and was the first woman in Canada to win the award.

Diana's work has twice been included in winning submissions for the Michener award, recognizing meritorious public service journalism in Canada.

Diana was honoured with an Alumni of the Year Award from her alma mater BCIT in 2006, an honourary degree from Humber College in Toronto in 2010, and a doctorate from BCIT in 2017.

Diana lives in the Toronto area.
