We were honoured to speak with Broadcast Journalist at Hockey Night in Canada Punjabi & OMNI Television Producer & Reporter, Amrit Gill on Monday April 19th!
We chatted about her journey to broadcasting and sports and how devoted to learning her craft and passion for storytelling and journalism as a kid in the school yard. Amrit also shared her experience learning Punjabi much later in life and the types of challenges she faced not just learning a new language but also the different circumstances she faced and continues to face as a woman in media.
Amrit Gill is a digital content coordinator and host on "Hockey Night in Canada: Punjabi Edition." She became the first woman on HNIC: Punjabi Edition six years ago. Her work focuses on telling stories that include recognizing individuals whose trials and tribulations in hockey have been vastly underrepresented. Alongside working in sports journalism, Amrit also has a background in radio and television news. Her current role also includes producing national and local newscasts daily on OMNI Television.
