Victoria Williston

Victoria joined CityNews Ottawa, from our sister station in Toronto, at the end of 2018 to take on the role of morning news anchor. Victoria is community oriented with a passion for telling good stories, from good people. This is evident in her work on non-profits, charities, and grassroots organizations.

Victoria also produces local reports on social causes -- like ending homelessness, and food insecurity. With a strong passion for fundraisers, Victoria is able to raise awareness on issues that affect those in Ottawa, Smiths Falls, and The Valley by using her platform as a respected community journalist.

In her free time, Victoria enjoys crafting home DIY projects and attending stand-up comedy shows -- pre-pandemic of course.

Stay connected by listening to the capital's favourite morning show with Victoria Williston and Andrew Boyle on CityNews Ottawa between 5 a.m. and 9 a.m. on 101.1 FM or 1310 AM. Have a news tip? Send to tips@ottawa.citynews.ca.
