    “Gord is so deserving of this recognition. He has and continues to be a terrific ambassador for both Global and our industry overall, as well as a positive influence on all of us who have had the pleasure of working alongside him,” Global Edmonton news director Michael Fulmes said Monday.

    “He is indeed, one of the best in the business.”

    Gord began his broadcasting career in Saskatchewan, where he attained his Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Communications from the University of Regina. His first job was in print journalism, then radio, before becoming a television reporter and anchor in Regina.

    He later ventured south of the border and worked at the now-defunct All News Channel in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Serving as both an anchor and a reporter, Gord covered the invasion of Panama and the Gulf War. However, Gord and his family were homesick for Canada, and couldn’t stay in the U.S. forever.

    Steinke seized the opportunity to join ITV (now Global Edmonton) back in 1992.
