Using the Power of Story with Joelle Tomlinson

I first met Joelle Tomlinson when I did a segment with her on CTV Calgary’s Morning Show. She is such a welcoming human being, always makes you feel comfortable, and rocks her role as morning co-anchor.

We talk in this episode about Joelle’s experience as an adopted child in a white family. She shares her experience growing up, how her parents handled it, and her incredible insight on how hurt people hurt people.

Joelle Tomlinson Interview

Joelle talks about 24 hours in the life of a morning news co-anchor including when she gets up, how she preps, her role as a spin instructor and what time she actually goes to bed!

We also talk about some harder content. In 2015, Joelle lost her brother Stefan to an accidental fentanyl overdose. At the time, she was an on air host in Saskatoon and her family decided to publicly share their story in the hopes that it would help other families. We discuss what it’s like to share something so personal so publicly and more.
