Ginella Massa

CityNews Toronto Journalist

On November 18, 2016, Ginella Massa was asked to fill in as the late anchor on CityNews Toronto. The broadcast made major headlines in Canada and internationally — including Vogue, The Guardian, and The Washington Post — because it made her the first woman in hijab to anchor a major Canadian newscast. This year, she’ll continue inspiring generations of Muslim women to break through expectations by appearing as a reporter and regular fill-in anchor on CityNews Toronto. You can read more about Ginella’s inspiring journey here.
