MC Biography

Aaron McArthur

Aaron loves being part of the Global news team since joining Global BC back in 2001. Growing up in Fernie, B.C., the television in the McArthur household was always on and tuned to Global News morning, noon and night. But Aaron still managed to find time to spend the summers on golf courses and the winter on the ski hills.

Aaron had always wanted to work at Global News (then called BCTV) and geared his education towards journalism. He graduated from the University of Victoria with a major in political science and a minor in history. He then enrolled in BCIT’s broadcast journalism program. Aaron started his journalism career at a local television station then known as UTV before moving to Global Saskatoon as the weekend anchor and reporter. He then moved on to Global Regina as a late night anchor before joining Global BC.

In his off hours, Aaron enjoys traveling around the world and has been to Antarctica, Buenos Aires and Africa. He also loves to golf and plays weekend warrior in the hockey rink.
