Farah ?Nasser has been informing viewers across the GTA for more than a decade. Among her career highlights are the Air France crash in 2005, G20 Summit in 2010 and the Toronto 18 terror trials. She’s a political veteran having covered municipal, provincial and federal elections.

A graduate of Ryerson University in Radio and Television Arts, she also attended the University of Westminster in London, England for European Media Studies and later interned for CNN in New Delhi, India.

Nasser began her career with Rogers TV before accepting a position with Newstalk 1010 in 1999. There she started as a producer and worked her way up into a reporting role. Next, Nasser made the move to Toronto where she worked as a journalist for two years before joining /A Channel News in Barrie, Ontario where she report?ed? for the Toronto Bureau. In 2006, she joined Citytv as a reporter and later became a weekend anchor. Prior to her position with Global News, Nasser was an anchor and reporter for CP24.

?[blockquote]Nasser considers herself lucky to work in journalism and credits her father with her curiosity and passion for current events. She always knew she wanted to go into broadcasting and fondly remembers her first paying job and thinking, “I can’t believe they are paying me, I would do this for free!”[/blockquote]When not reporting on the day’s headlines, Nasser spends her time volunteering in the community. She regularly emcees community events and works with the Aga Khan Foundation, an organization that provides sustainable solutions for developing countries. She also sits on the Board of Directors for the University Health Network’s Arthritis Research Foundation.Nasser lives in the GTA with her husband?, ?her two-year-old son and her newly born baby girl?. She can often be found exploring the city, trying new restaurants or doing yoga.

I had the pleasure to have a candid one-on-one chat with Farah in her brand new home earlier this month shortly after she gave birth to her baby girl. It was during this visit that Farah opened up to me about motherhood, raising her children, her love for politics and what life has been like in the media.
