You know her as Global Edmonton’s legendary broadcaster… we know her as a long-time associate, friend, and our 2019 Spring Edmonton Woman’s Show Guest Speaker! We are pleased to announce that Lorraine Mansbridge – Edmontonian, TV personality, wife, business woman (she wears a lot of hats!) – is going to be stepping out onto our Main Stage to share her story!
Presentation Times: 12:30pm, April 13th and 1:00pm, April 14th.
Lorraine Mansbridge started her journey in the spotlight in Winnipeg as Miss Manitoba, putting herself through university with a modelling career, but the summer of ’77 she got an offer that would set her life on a different course. She became the first female rock’n’roll disc jockey in Canada (yes, that is right – the FIRST!), with the radio powerhouse company Moffatt Communications. Three years later she moved on to TV – hosting live shows – and eventually she found herself in Edmonton, where she got her start with “Good, Good Morning”, as well as hosting a nationally syndicated show, “The New You”, out of Toronto. She later moved in to local news, as a host and producer for Global’s Morning News. Now retired from a long and fruitful career at Edmonton’s Global TV, Lorraine is exploring her voice on social media.
