Andrea Bellemare joined the CBC as an intern with CBC Toronto in late 2006, chasing people down – literally – to get their thoughts on everything from daylight saving time to voting. She is a graduate of Ryerson’s Journalism program. After traveling the world she rejoined the CBC in 2009, working at CBC News Network as a chase producer, writer, story editor and control room producer for News Network weekends, with stints at the CBC Arts Unit and the News Network morning show with Heather Hiscox. Recently, she was a producer with the CBC Community Team.
Andrea worked as a reporter for the wire service Agence France-Presse and her photos have been published around the world. Andrea is CBC Kitchener-Waterloo’s online host, a new job description for CBC – that will see her hosting the station’s digital service.
