Amanda Connolly

I'm a storyteller. I tell people's stories.

It's that simple. Be it radio, TV, online news, print journalism, multimedia or fiction, the people come first.

I love politics and traveling and animals. I love breaking a story. I don't really care for screaming children in public places.

What words describe me? Tea nerd. Wanderlust. Political junkie. Animal-lover. Writer. Leader. Social media fiend. Photographer. Resilient. Compassionate. I know a lot of random facts and love sharing them.

I've worked for CBC The House, the Vancouver Observer, the Toronto Star, Capital News Online, Centretown News, Midweek on CKCU FM and the North Oakville Today.
