Daiene Vernile is an award-winning Kitchener broadcast journalist who covered your issues for three decades on CTV’s Provincewide.

A compassionate listener and insightful interviewer, Daiene (pronounced Diane) investigated many subjects, including social, cultural, educational, economic, healthcare, and many other concerns.  Now she’s committing herself to directly helping you and advancing local matters at the front line of public service.

For over thirty years, Daiene has been an active volunteer and community supporter.  She is a strong advocate on women’s issues, passionate champion for social justice, and hands-on volunteer for poverty reduction – including many years at the St. John’s Kitchen helping prepare meals.    

Daiene is among Wilfrid Laurier University’s “100 Alumni of Achievement” who inspire lives of leadership and purpose.  She began her career as a Queens Park legislative reporter, expanded her  journalism skills in Texas, and returned home to Ontario, spearheading one of Canada’s longest running public affairs programs.   

With husband John, they settled into their first home in downtown Kitchener and soon welcomed firstborn, Andrew.  Their family grew to include Curtis and Claire as they moved to the Forest Hill neighbourhood.  Today, with the family grown, Daiene is re-dedicating her energy to helping people across the community through public service.
