Maya Johnson

Maya Johnson, CTV Montreal’s Quebec City Bureau Chief, has been reporting for the television station since 2005, where she began as an intern while studying journalism at Concordia University. After graduating with distinction, Maya was profiled as an up-and-coming journalist in “Watch This Face”, a feature in the Montreal Gazette. She spent a session studying at the Michelangelo Italian language and culture school in Florence, Italy, before heading back to the newsroom, where she was hired as a full-time general assignment reporter in 2012. Maya has covered breaking news across the province – from Lac Megantic to L’Isle-Verte to Les Îles-de-la-Madeleine. In 2018, she led CTV Montreal’s coverage of the provincial election campaign. On election night, she was in Quebec City at CAQ headquarters when the party made history, sweeping to power for the first time with a majority government under François Legault. In 2019, she was nominated for the RTDNA Canada Dave Rogers Award (Large Market) for her report “Standing Tall, A Survivor’s Journey”, a look at the recovery of Aymen Derbali, one of the men who survived the Quebec City mosque shooting. In addition to reporting from Quebec City, Maya continues to fill in at the anchor desk in Montreal.
