Meghan Furman joined the CTV News Team in October 2008 as a videographer for CTV Southwestern Ontario.
She first started her journalism career while living in York Region and working for a local television station as a news reporter. Furman then assumed additional exposure to the world of broadcasting by taking on the roles of weekend anchor and associate producer.
In 2008, she got a taste for Western Canada and moved across the country to work as a reporter for Citytv Edmonton. It wasn't long, however, before she accepted a position at CTV News and was back in her home province doing what she loves the most.
During her career, Furman has covered a wide range of news events including the 2007 funeral for Detective Constable Robert Plunkett, a York Region police officer killed in the line of duty, numerous provincial and federal elections and even had the unique opportunity to don surgical attire for a special report on the 3D technology used during open heart surgery.
Furman is the recipient of RTNDA Canada's Charlie Edwards Award for best spot news following her coverage of the 2009 killer tornado that ripped through West Grey County. She captured the extensive destruction, shock and heartbreak that brought the community to its knees.
Furman has an Honours Bachelor of Applied Arts from the University of Guelph and a diploma in Media Communications from Humber College. She has reported for Canada AM, CTV News Channel and CP24.
