Heather Steele has been named as the new Regional News Director and Station Manager for Global Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

Steele succeeds Brent Williamson, who left the role in April to take the helm of Global Edmonton.

She began her journalism career in 2005 in her hometown of Winnipeg as a researcher and freelancer before joining CKX News in Brandon as a reporter. Steele joined Global Winnipeg in 2009, as a nightwatch reporter and began anchoring the late-night newscast a year later, eventually moving to Global News at 6. She began working with 680 CJOB as an Executive Producer in 2019 and most recently has held the role of Manager of Talk and Talent.

Corus Entertainment has also announced the departure of two of its high-level communications staff.

Rishma Govani, the Director of News and Radio Communications, will leave Corus Entertainment after more than a decade, effective July 12.

Buffy McGaw, the Director of News Marketing For Global News, also left the company at the end of June. Starting as a Promo Producer and Manager for Global News Toronto in 1999, McGaw returned for her second tour at Global News in 2013 as Marketing Director.
