Alissa Thibault grew up in Australia but her father grew up in Melfort, Sask., so she’s lucky enough to be a dual Canadian-Australian citizen.
She joined CTV News Vancouver in 2019.
Alissa began working in news in 2007 as a radio newsreader after graduating with a Bachelor of Journalism from the University of Queensland in Brisbane.
She spent seven years in radio and was nominated for the Best Newcomer award at the Australian Commercial Radio Awards. While her work was mostly in news, Alissa also co-hosted an FM radio show on weekends.
But her great love was television and in 2016 she made the switch to Channel Nine in Sydney as a producer/reporter.
In 2017, she packed her bags and moved to Vancouver to experience life as a Canadian.
Starting out as a writer on CBC News Network with Ian Hanomansing, Alissa also worked as an anchor at News1130 before becoming the Breaking News producer for CBC’s The National in 2018.
Alissa now considers herself a Vancouverite and in her spare time she hosts her own podcast, hikes the mountains and plays her guitar.
