Troy Reeb

Senior VP, News, Radio and Station Operations,
Corus Entertainment
Toronto, ON, Canada
As the head of Global News and Corus Radio, Troy Reeb is responsible for all content across Corus - radio, TV, and digital. His roster spans the network’s flagship newscast Global National, local operations from 15 Global News stations and 39 Corus Radio stations across Canada.

A lifelong supporter of radio, Reeb’s career in media began at 16, working for his hometown radio station in Westlock, Alberta. Having worked through the ranks, Reeb was a long-time radio executive when he joined Global News in 1999, switching gears from radio to serve as a political correspondent.

Having reported from across North America, Europe, Africa, Russia and Japan – including on the ground reporting from events such as 9/11 in New York, the AIDS crisis in sub-Saharan Africa and Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans – Reeb was chosen to head Global News in 2008.

Reeb has managed the addition of newscasts in every market, established Global News’ award-winning Multi-Market Content (MMC) broadcast model and spearheaded Global News’ commitment to covering breaking news online and via social media with Global News’ digital-first strategy resulting in current position of second most popular news site in Canada.
Retracing his radio roots, Reeb additionally became the head of Corus Radio in 2016. Overseeing 39 multi-format stations across Canada, Reeb orchestrated the rebranding of Corus’ AM radio stations with the Global News Radio moniker, aligning newly affiliated stations with the success of Global News.

Reeb is a passionate board member of Journalists for Human Rights, which trains journalists from developing countries to report on human rights and governance abuses.

Outside of news and radio, Reeb is a “football dad” who enjoys travelling. Having visited more than 100 countries, he loves a game of Trivial Pursuit – especially the geography questions.
