Nicole Di Donato is the weekend anchor and a video journalist at CTV News Saskatoon. Growing up, Nicole never shied away from the camera or from an opportunity to ask questions. It's that curiosity that led her to pursue a career in broadcast journalism. Nicole always knew she wanted to work in the television and film industry. She got her start by acting in a series of commercials on both the Family Channel and on YTV. Nicole then discovered her passion for broadcast journalism after completing a summer co-op at Rogers Television Mississauga in 2014, where she got experience as an on-camera reporter and a producer's assistant.
Originally from Toronto, Nicole graduated from Ryerson University's journalism program with distinction in 2019 and minored in public relations. Before joining the CTV Saskatoon team, Nicole worked at the CTV News Northern Ontario bureau in Sault Ste. Marie, where she got the opportunity to report on breaking news and feature stories for the air and for the web. Nicole has also made an effort to get involved behind the camera. She worked as the floor director for CHIN TV's two-hour live television show, Festival Italiano di Johnny Lombardi, for almost four years. Nicole also completed an eight-week intensive filmmaking workshop at the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles, California in the summer of 2018. There, she got experience directing, writing, casting and shooting her own original films.
Nicole enjoys meeting new people and loves covering stories related to music, film and the arts. She has had a passion for performing and writing for as long as she can remember and looks forward to a future of storytelling.
