Rylee Carlson is an award-winning correspondent based in London, England where she covers stories from Europe and the U.K. Her reporting often airs on CBS Newspath and Canada’s Global National.
Previously, Rylee was a senior reporter and anchor at CTV News in Calgary, Canada. Her strong, natural ‘live’ ability, colorful storytelling and original reporting have earned her a front-row seat to some of Canada's biggest news stories.
Rylee played a key role in the station's RTDNA-nominated coverage of Alberta's provincial election in 2015. In 2013, she helped lead CTV's coverage of an historic flood in Alberta -- the worst in Canadian history. Her storytelling and investigative work culminated in the documentary "Water at the Door" which earned an international Edward R. Murrow Award.
In 2009 Rylee reported from the poverty-stricken nation of Haiti. When a devastating earthquake struck a year later, she went back a second time to report on the destruction first-hand.
What sets Rylee apart is the range of stories she can tell -- from natural disasters, to politics, and even the quirkiest of human-interest pieces -- like the man who tied dozens of helium balloons to a lawn chair and set sail over the city attracting confused onlookers, but also the police.
When she’s not reporting, you can find Rylee on the golf course, or on the road. Her travels have taken her around the world -- through the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe. Rylee is completing her Masters Degree in International Journalism at City University in London. She speaks French and is learning Arabic.
