Amber is a homegrown product of the BNN newsroom, working her way up from intern, to segment producer, and now to anchor.

She is a leader in breaking news; reporting on Canada’s booming online gaming sector, activist interest in one of Canada’s biggest pipeline companies and one of the most plugged in reporters on the turnaround effort at BlackBerry.
