Part of the Storytellers in motion series

Carla Robinson is a National CBC News anchor who grew up in Kitimat and Bella Bella. Her genuine interest in people nurtured an interest in telling stories at an early age. By the time she was 17, she was a reporter for a weekly newspaper in Terrace. After completing degrees at the University of Western Ontario and Carleton University, Robinson moved to a career at CBC in Toronto. She is the only aboriginal person to work as a television anchor in the national broadcaster's 50 year history.

While passionate about relaying traditional stories about indigenous people, she observes that the conventions of television journalism form systemic barriers. Carla Robinson returns to her home community in Kitimat whenever she can, for it is there she is able to realign her work-life balance.
