Caroline Jeba

"The drive and initiative that first brought Caroline Jeba  (Jebanathirajah) to CFMT-TV, Canada’s First Multilingual/Multicultural Television system, has served her well throughout her career with the station," says a spokesperson for CFMT-TV.


Caroline was first inspired to contact CFMT-TV in the spring of 1996, after watching its Jump Cut programme.  (At that same time, Caroline had already started to pursue her television career, as a volunteer with Rogers and Shaw cable systems.)  Soon after meeting with CFMT-TV producer Stan Papulkas, Caroline began volunteering with its South Asian programming unit as the TelePrompTer operator for South Asian Newsweek.  She was also allowed the opportunity to write small segments for the programme, a break which later grew into reporting for South Asian Newsweek -- and in the summer of 1999, a full-time position as General Assignment Reporter for CFMT-TV’s news department.


In September, 1999, Caroline was invited to co-anchor South Asian Newsweek.


Currently, in addition to her writing, reporting and other on-air duties with South Asian Newsweek, Caroline writes and produces health, consumer and late-breaking stories for CFMT-TV’s Chinese, Italian and Portuguese news programmes.  The Association of Women of India (AWIC) apparently anticipated Caroline Jeba’s success in her chosen profession: in January of 1999 – after she had established herself as a reporter, but prior to her increased job responsibilities with CFMT-TV -- they awarded her their Certificate of Achievement for her “outstanding work in Journalism and Media.”
