Amy Luft has worked as a digital reporter at CTV Montreal since 2010, producing content for the website and social media pages.
Born and raised in Montreal, Amy graduated from Concordia’s Communications and Journalism program in 2001. She spent a year living in Ireland, returning home to work for a magazine called The NewCanadian. Within six months, she was editor-in-chief.
She struck out on her own a few years later, working as a freelance journalist before landing reporting and editing jobs at the The Gazette and Reader’s Digest.
Amy also spent two years working as the Quebec correspondent for The Associated Press, covering major Quebec stories of international interest.
While her main role at CTV is as a web reporter, she has also filled in as line-up editor, assignment editor and on-air reporter. Amy was an elections results producer for the last three provincial elections and was the Quebec results specialist for CTV’s national election coverage in October 2015, a career highlight.
Amy is a passionate advocate for the rights of people with disabilities and works with StopGap Montreal to build and supply free portable ramps to local businesses that are inaccessible to people who use wheelchairs.
Journalism is in Amy’s blood – her father, Herb Luft, worked at CFCF/CTV Montreal for 39 years.
