Global National announced today the appointment of Lauren McNabb as Mideast bureau chief and the launch of their offices in Jerusalem.
According to Global: "Lauren joined Global National from Global Winnipeg in 2003 as their Manitoba correspondent before moving to the Toronto bureau in 2005. Born and raised in Minnedosa, Manitoba, Lauren is a Carleton University graduate. Lauren’s aggressive reporting style enables her to dig deeper into issues and provide Canadians with exclusive behind-the-scenes stories no one else can. In 2008, she and her camera operator risked their lives to become the only North American journalists to travel into the restricted Myanmar/Burma region to report first hand on the devastation caused by Cyclone Nargis. She has also reported from Afghanistan twice covering the Canadian military’s efforts in the war-torn region. Lauren has also reported on the aftermath of several disasters in 2005: New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, Pakistan after the devastating earthquake and Sri Lanka after the disastrous tsunami. Prior to joining Global National, she spent six months in Zimbabwe, Africa, writing for a local magazine, before moving back to Manitoba in 2000."
