About Shauna

Shauna Hunt is an award winning television journalist for CityNews in Toronto, Canada. Shauna graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism from Fanshaw College in 2003 and was immediately hired at CKSY-FM radio in Chatham On as their afternoon drive anchor. Within a year, Shauna was lured to the big city and jointed AM 640 in Toronto as a news reporter for two years before being recruited by all news station 680 News where she was a reporter and news anchor for 6 years. In 2011, Shauna moved to television, joining Citytv as both an on air reporter and anchor. Based in the fourth largest media market in North America, Shauna has covered some of the most significant local, national, and international news stories of the past decade, including the G20 Riots, a mass shooting at Toronto Eaton Centre, the Rob Ford saga from election to his death, the election of Justin Trudeau, and the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, where Donald Trump was named leader. In 2015, Shauna became the center of an international media firestorm when she confronted a raucous soccer fan on television for sexual harassment. The story went viral and made headlines worldwide resulting in Shauna being named one of 2015 “Newsmakers of the Year” and appeared twice on the cover of MacLean’s Magazine. To quote Justin Trudeau; "First of all I would like to congratulate Shauna Hunt for her courageous stand and her courageous shaming of these individuals. It's time people woke up and realized that we need to make sure we are protecting everyone in this country and putting a stop to bullying, harassment and disrespect of that nature." In 2018, with cannabis on the road to legalization, Shauna took on the cannabis beat. Her podcast “The Legal Potcast,” made Apple’s top 200 podcasts of the week with episodes charting as high as the top 50. “The Legal Potcast” was also highlighted on Apple’s list of new and noteworthy podcasts. Shauna has received four RTDNA Awards for team broadcasting and has been nominated for two others. Married with two young daughters, Lennon and Joni, Shauna lives in Mississauga, Ontario.
