Isabelle Raghem was born and raised in and around the Toronto area but is now proud to call Vancouver Island home. Her reporting career began in Hamilton, Ontario at CHCH News where she spent nearly two years writing, producing and reporting for the morning show and evening newscast. She studied journalism in London, Ontario where she earned her Media Theory Production Degree at Western University and her Broadcast Diploma at Fanshawe College. After receiving the opportunity to join the CHEK News team, Isabelle packed up her belongings and drove over 4,300 kilometres across the country to Victoria.
Isabelle is the proud recipient of ‘The Canadian Press / Eric Murray Scholarship for Aboriginal Persons and Members of a Visible Minority’ for her 2014 documentary ‘Courage Canada: Blind Ice Hockey’. She is also the winner of ‘The Martha Blackburn Scholarship’, given to a woman who demonstrates personal commitment towards her career goals of working in broadcasting.
In her spare time, you can find Isabelle hiking, skiing, teaching dance and playing board games. She also loves visiting her family in Montreal where she gets to speak French, her mother tongue.
