Sue Sgambati

Sue Sgambati's career spans more than 30 years and includes radio, television and print.

She has covered many high profile crime and court cases, including the trial of serial killer Robert Pickton in British Columbia, the historic review of Steven Truscott's wrongful murder conviction at the Ontario Court of Appeal and the trials of Tori Stafford's killers. During her 11-year stint as crime reporter for Global Television, Sue broke the story of the so-called "crime of the century"--the 1993 arrest of serial killer Paul Bernardo and his ex-wife Karla Homolka.

She was honoured with a Radio and Television News Director's Award for her wall-to-wall coverage of Bernardo's trial. She also received several awards for police reporting from various GTA police services. Listeners at radio station Mix 99.9 also voted Sue as Toronto's Best Reporter. Sue was the Crime Specialist at Court TV Canada for more than six years during which she developed, produced and hosted several programs. They included the channel's flagship program, On Trial, a weekly wrap up of the nation's top crime and court stories. She also hosted and produced a series on unsolved cold cases, Crime Files: Cold Case Edition.

While at Court TV, Sue was honoured by Child Find Ontario for her work in drawing attention to missing children.
During her six years at CP24, Sue covered many major news stories including the G8 and G20 summits while hosting monthly shows with Toronto's Police Chief and the OPP Commissioner.

Sue also developed and hosted several shows for CTV's flagship public affairs program W5 and won a RTNDA award for a show that helped lead to the identification of a murder victim from nearly 40 years ago.

More recently, Sue worked at CBC Toronto where she covered daily news and cold case stories for television, radio and online.

Sue is a graduate or Ryerson's Radio and Television Arts program.
