REGINA (September 5, 2013) – CTV Saskatchewan News Director Carl Worth announced today that Creeson Agecoutay will host and co-produce INDIGENOUS CIRCLE. Agecoutay makes his debut this fall on the station’s weekly current affairs program focusing on First Nations and Métis communities. A 2013 graduate of the University of Regina School of Journalism, Agecoutay was raised on the Cowessess First Nation, and joined CTV Regina as an intern in 2008. He later assumed part-time video journalist duties for the station while attending the U of R.
Worth’s announcement coincides with the appointment of Nelson Bird, former Host and Co-Producer of INDIGENOUS CIRCLE, to a newsroom leadership role as Assignment Editor for CTV Regina, Saskatchewan’s #1 news team. The Assignment Editor role is a promotion for Bird, a 14-year CTV Saskatchewan veteran reporter and aboriginal affairs specialist. Bird will remain a co-host alongside Agecoutay in the early fall editions of INDIGENOUS CIRCLE, before Agecoutay assumes full hosting duties later in the season.
“Both Creeson and Nelson have demonstrated talent and a tireless commitment to their community,” said David Fisher, Vice-President and General Manager, CTV Regina. “We look forward to continued collaboration between Creeson and Nelson on INDIGENOUS CIRCLE, a pairing that ensures the ongoing commitment to excellent journalism and community service that the show represents. I congratulate both of them on their well-deserved appointments.”
