Award-winning Journalist Tracy Tong Moves to Evenings on Global News Toronto

Global News welcomes a familiar face to its Toronto evening newscast, as Tracy Tong joins the news desk alongside veteran anchor Alan Carter.

In addition to anchoring Global News at 11 p.m., the award-winning journalist brings her thoughtful, hard-hitting news expertise to the anchor desk during evenings, Monday to Friday at 5:30 and 6 p.m.

Tracy has worked on some of the biggest breaking news and developing stories in North America, including hosting and producing Global News’ network-wide special, Hidden Hate: Anti-Asian Racism, live reporting during the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election, and covering high-profile crime cases like Bruce McArthur’s serial killings in the GTA. On Saturdays, Tracy can be seen hosting Global News’ brand-new series, Crime Beat: Most Wanted, at 7:30 p.m.

“We are so excited to have Tracy Tong – a trusted and exceptional journalist and anchor – join the seasoned Alan Carter, on the evening news desk,” said Regional Director of News, Mackay Taggart. “The two of them bring a wealth of knowledge and experience, as well as a deep passion for news, to our

Toronto audiences.”

Viewers can now catch anchor Shallima Maharaj during the 11 p.m. newscast on Fridays, and Mark Carcasole will continue to anchor Global News Weekend at 6 p.m. and 11 p.m.
