Hey, I’m David Thurton. This is the section of my site where I REALLY get to brag about myself.

I was born in Canada but I grew-up in Trinidad and Tobago. My job as a video journalist allows me to see the world. I’ve worked in five Canadian provinces/territories. I’ve also reported from Alaska, USA, Cuernavaca, Mexico, Sydney, Australia and Trinidad and Tobago. In 2012, CBC awarded me the Joan Donaldson Scholarship.

Right now I am a video journalist with CBC News in the Northwest Territories. My home base is the town of Inuvik. But I also cover the Beaufort-Delta communities such as Tsiigehtchic, Aklavik, Fort McPherson, Tuktoyaktuk, Paulatuk, Ulukhaktok and Sachs Harbour. Essentially, I report about Canada’s Western Arctic. That makes me CBC’s most northern video journalist. No big deal, right?
