Colin D’Mello is a videojournalist at CTV News Toronto, serving as the station's Queen's Park Bureau Chief, covering provincial politics for all local CTV News stations in Ontario. D’Mello has covered all levels of politics in Canada, including the 2018 Progressive Conservative leadership race and CTV News’ province-wide 2018 Ontario election special.
Soon after joining CTV Toronto as a reporter in 2011, D’Mello began anchoring the station’s weekend broadcasts alongside Andria Case. He has covered major local news events including Toronto’s April 2018 ice storm, the Yonge Street van attack, and the Bruce McArthur case.
D’Mello jump-started his career as a 19-year-old when he moved to Moncton, N.B. to work as an announcer for News 91.9. He then helped launch 1310 News, an all-news radio station in Ottawa, before moving to Toronto where he spent four years as an anchor and city hall reporter at 680 News. While there, he was part of the station’s award-winning coverage of the 2008 Sunrise Propane explosion, the Tamil protesters occupying the Gardiner Expressway in 2009, and the G20 protests in 2010.
D’Mello was born in Kuwait and lived there until 1998. He credits the events of the first Gulf War for shaping his interests in storytelling. D’Mello is a graduate of the broadcast journalism program at Seneca College. He is married with two children.
