Signa Butler

Signa Butler joined CBC Sports in 2000 following her graduation from Ryerson University's graduate journalism program. She worked with cbcsports.ca for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games and remained with the website over the next 10 years. She then moved in front of the cameras as sports host for CBC News Network. PyeongChang 2018 was her 10th Olympics with the network, where she was a commentator for ski jumping and Nordic combined. 

Butler has worked as a field reporter for World Cup snowboarding, World Cup freestyle skiing, Grand Prix figure skating, and Championship Show Jumping at Spruce Meadows. She also covered the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and the Sochi 2014 and Rio 2016 Paralympic Games for CBC/Radio-Canada. She is currently the sports host on CBC News Network and co-host of CBC Sports: Best of 10 with Rob Pizzo. 

A native of Halifax, Butler excelled at just about every sport growing up, but she settled on soccer in university. During her years with the Saint Mary's University Huskies, she was an All-Canadian, AUS Conference Player of the Year and nominated for the CIS Player of the Year. Butler also played on Nova Scotia's provincial basketball and Canada Games field hockey teams. In recent years, ultimate Frisbee took centre stage, but she’s since hung up her cleats after three ACL reconstructions. 

Butler is the proud (and busy) mom to twin boys and remains a committed sports fan, as she has been from an early age.
