Cristina Tenaglia puts her passion for live field reporting to work as Remote Reporter for CP24 since July 2012. It was a homecoming for Tenaglia, who worked at 299 Queen Street West as Researcher and Associate Producer for the Gemini-nominated and RTNDA-winning consumer issues call-in-show SILVERMAN HELPS on CP24. Since joining the CP24 team, Tenaglia has covered big breaking stories including live coverage from the July 2012 Danzig Street shooting in Scarborough, live coverage of Premier McGuinty’s resignation in October 2012, and other live broadcasts including throne speeches, budgets, economic updates, and other events occurring in the legislature.
In 2011, Tenaglia was the recipient of the RTDNA Canada President’s Fellowship, while attending the acclaimed Poynter Institute for Journalism in St. Petersburg, Florida. An Honours graduate of Ryerson’s Radio and Television Arts program, Tenaglia worked as a reporter for Rogers Television in York Region through school. In her final year, she wrote and researched a senior-level thesis paper “Tonight’s Top Story and How it is Determined,” about how the top news story is chosen for large to medium local markets.
Prior to rejoining CP24, Tenaglia had been a reporter, videographer, and anchor for CHCH News in Hamilton since 2008. While at CHCH, she covered some of Canada’s most high-profile court cases and murder trials. She thrives on courts and crime reporting, but is also at home when covering politics, entertainment, and other breaking news. From September 2006 to June 2008, Tenaglia was an associate producer and researcher for CityNews' SILVERMAN HELPS
Tenaglia lives and works in Toronto, but grew up in the city of Vaughan. She enjoys spending her downtime exercising, volunteering in her community, and spending time with her Maltese. “The best part of the job is meeting all sorts of interesting people, from all walks of life, and having the opportunity to share their stories" says Tenaglia.
