JACKSON PROSKOW, REPORTER
Jackson Proskow joined Global Toronto in January 2006, but his career in broadcasting started well before that, in his hometown of Calgary.
As a 16 year old high school student, Jackson found himself reporting for Shaw TV and freelancing for CBC Radio. Bitten by the news bug, he pursued broadcast journalism at the University of Calgary and the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology.
After graduation, he was hired by Global News in Lethbridge, Alberta. The small station gave him a chance to do just about everything, from reporting, to anchoring the weekend news and even filling in on the weather desk. There were also some incredible news stories to cover, from the flood of the century to a tornado that touched down right in front of Jackson's camera.
Jackson's next move was to CH TV in Hamilton, and included more wild weather. A career highlight includes the hours of breaking news coverage, after a tornado touched down in the city.
Now in Toronto, Jackson is looking for new challenges, and fewer tornadoes! When he's not on air, you can find him enjoying the outdoors, listening to music, or in one of Toronto's great neighbourhoods.

I came in here expecting this thread to be about me!
I don't really know how to put this, but I'm a really big deal. My house smells of rich mahogany furniture...
Oh well back to relative obscurity I go.

I remember going on a photoshoot with jackson and chris dewolfe. we then met JB at Eau Claire, where he downed a huge sub ( and was photographed eating said sub).
I have no idea why I remember that.

JACKSON PROSKOW is sometimes a sensational reporter.

Wow I remember Jackson on CH Hamilton. He did local reporting stuff in Hamilton. I remember the tornado too, he was the first at the site.
Like all CH reporters he moved on to Toronto.
CH had Sarika Sehgal too, think she's from Edmonton. Now she's the main news anchor at CBC Newsworld. And before Sarika it was Heather Hiscox and now she host CBC Morning.
