Thanks for spending some time and space with me.
I’m Karen Cumming – a journalist with more than 20 years experience in local, national and international radio and TV news.
My freelance writing has appeared in such publications as Oxygen Magazine, More Magazine, Costco Connection, Investment Executive and The (Hamilton) Spectator. I also worked as a producer/reporter at the 2012 Olympics in London for Olympic Broadcast Services.
Before becoming an aspiring astronaut, I started out as a radio newscaster/reporter for CHUM in Montreal. I then moved on to CHML in Hamilton and Talk 640 in Toronto, where I added talk show producing to my resume.
A move to Edmonton gave me the chance to get into television with CanWest Global. Later, I joined CHCH-tv in Hamilton for nearly a decade as a reporter/producer.
There’s nothing I love better than telling other people’s stories.
Thanks to “The Mars 100”, I have a pretty cool story of my own to tell now.
I’ve shared it in print, online, on radio, on television, and at two amazing annual conferences in Toronto: “ideacity” and “BlissDom”.
I can’t wait to share it with you.
