Farah Nasser is a Canadian journalist. In May 2015, she was named by Shaw Media as the co-anchor of Global Toronto's 5:30pm and 6pm newscast, alongside Alan Carter.[1] Previous to this role, she was an anchor with CablePulse24 in Toronto.

She previously anchored Citytv Toronto's CityNews weekend editions at 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. with Roger Petersen until she was laid off on January 19, 2010. CITY-TV announced cuts to several news programs and staff. The weekend news was cancelled, and Nasser was part of a company-wide layoff that affected 6% of CITY's staff, and several on-air presenters.[2]

In 2001, at the age of 20, she landed a summer job with CNN in New Delhi, India. She was then a second-year radio and television student at (then) Ryerson Polytechnic University. As per a photo caption in the GTA Today newspaper of May 11, 2001, she wrote to every bureau CNN had and most required a credit course she didn't have by then, except Miami and New Delhi.

"I chose New Delhi because it's on the other side of the world," she said.

She started that job on Monday, May 14, 2001.
