Rosey Edeh (born August 16, 1966) is a Canadian television personality, who was most recently a news anchor for Global News at Noon on Global Toronto.


Edeh was born in London, England. She was a weather presenter, providing weather forecasts on CFCF in Montreal, before moving to the United States to work for CNN and most recently, a weathercaster on NBC's Early Today and MSNBC.

Her running skills led to an athletic scholarship at Rice University in Houston, Texas, where she began to establish herself as a world-class 400-meter hurdler. After her 100-meter hurdle time was considered one of the best athletes to come to Rice and was inducted into the Rice Hall of Fame. At the time of her induction she was ranked sixth in the world. Being one of Rice's best female runners she received five time All America.[2] A resident of Lasalle, Quebec, she competed at the Olympic Games in 1988, 1992 and 1996.[3] She won a bronze medal at the 1990 Commonwealth Games as a member of the 4 x 400 metre relay team, and was part of the gold medal winning 4 x 400 metre relay team, at the 1992 World Cup of Track and Field.

In July 2016 her daughter Micha Powell was officially named to Canada's Olympic team.[4]
