Meteorologist

Bradlyn’s path to broadcasting started in high school in Sherwood Park. She was trying to figure out how to combine her love of the weather, math and acting into a career. She was really inspired to study the weather by the 1996 movie Twister.

After completing her Bachelor of Science in Earth and Atmospheric Science, she decided to jet off around the world carrying everything she owned in a backpack. Soon enough she settled in Sydney, Australia where she obtained a Masters Degree in Media Production.

Her first on-air job was as a morning radio host in Sydney, Australia, covering weather, news and current events.

After moving back to Canada she started in television as the meteorologist for CBC North where she covered the weather for all three Canadian territories. During this time she tracked storms across 3 million square kilometres and specialized in reporting on climate change in the Arctic.

From there she joined the team at CTV Regina as the noon and evening weather anchor.
