Dawna Friesen to take over as Global National anchor…

13 07 2010

In a news conference held earlier today, Canwest Media made the official announcement that NBC’s Dawna Friesen will be taking the position of anchor and executive editor of Global National.

This is a homecoming for the Emmy Award-winning Friesen, a native of Winnipeg, who began her career in journalism in Canada, working with CBC and CTV before joining NBC, where she is currently the network’s London-based correspondent.

Friesen takes over from Kevin Newman as the anchor of Global National in September.

Here’s the official link from Global.

This is an excellent move for Global. Though they hired from outside of the network, there’s no doubt that Dawna has what it takes to handle Global National, and the journalistic background that will help to continue to grow Global National, not only on television, but in the online media, as well.

Congratulations, Dawna Friesen!
