After 30 incredible years bringing the news to Edmontonians, Global News anchor Gord Steinke has announced his retirement.

Steinke has been a mainstay in Alberta’s capital city for three decades, delivering the news on Global News Hour at 6 and Global News at 5.

He began his journalism career at the CBC, before moving to Minneapolis to work for an ABC affiliate. He started with ITV (now Global Edmonton) in 1992.

Steinke announced his retirement on Wednesday.

“It wasn’t an easy decision to leave such a great team at Global Edmonton,” Steinke said. “After 30 years at the anchor desk, time has flown by. I have a lot of adventures on my bucket list that I am excited to explore and feel I better get moving while I can still get on my motorcycle.

  1. Saskatoon guy who has done very well. Sure hope it was his decision not encouragement from Corus……cause in today’s broadcast world nothing surprises anymore. Big shoes to fill. He will be missed!

  2. Gord won’t be leaving until August 31, so this definitely sounds like it’s on Gord’s timing and not Corus pushing him out. Otherwise, I think Corus would have pushed him out sooner.

  3. I love the way that you talk to the people that you are interviewing. You pick good topics.
    Thank you for all that you have done, and I wish you a happy retirement.
