Joe Lofaro is a digital reporter at CTV Montreal.

In 2023, he was a finalist for the RTDNA Award for Excellence in Data Storytelling.

Born and raised in the nation’s capital, he began his journalism career at Metro Ottawa, where he covered some of the biggest stories of his career, including the Parliament Hill shooting and an investigation into the Ottawa Police Service’s tendency to dismiss sexual assault claims as unfounded. The small but mighty newspaper also sent him across the world to South Korea in 2013, where he had the honor of interviewing veterans of the Korean War.

In 2016, he was hired as a reporter at the Ottawa Citizen, where he worked primarily in the newspaper’s court desk. At the time, he reported extensively on the Supreme Court of Canada’s Jordan decision and its implications for murder and child abuse cases, and published an exposé on historical sexual abuse allegations involving an Ottawa priest.

He also worked at CBC Ottawa as a digital reporter, where he further expanded his skills by reporting for radio.

He briefly changed careers to work as a digital content writer for the Canadian Senate’s Communications Directorate, which allowed him to document the work of senators on a fact-finding mission through Northern Canada and learn more about life in the Arctic.

In March 2021, he moved to Montreal to join CTV’s newsroom.
