Host and Video Journalist, CTV’s Indigenous Circle
Creeson Agecoutay is a proud Nehiyaw (Plains Cree) from the Cowessess First Nation in Treaty 4 Territory. He is a national and regional award-winning reporter with CTV Regina and the host and producer for CTV’s, Indigenous Circle. Born in Saskatoon, Creeson was raised by his single mother, Claudia, on Cowessess where he spent most of his childhood until graduating high school from the Cowessess Community Education Centre. Creeson’s mother made sure that education was very important in the Agecoutay home and hard work will get you far in life. After graduation, he immediately enrolled in the Indian Communication and Arts (INCA) program at the First Nations University of Canada, while working part-time. He later received a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from the University of Regina’s School of Journalism, and while in university, he also wrote articles for Eagle Feather News and did an internship with the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix. Since 2008, Creeson has played a key role in everything the news team does on a daily basis at CTV Regina. Just last year, Indigenous Circle was recognized with the RTDNA National Trina McQueen Award for Best TV News Information Program and the entire 22-minute show was on the 2017 First Nations University Powwow in Regina. Outside of his job, Creeson enjoys travelling and spending time with family, especially his mother, who has helped him so much in life and he now wants to give back to her as much as he can.
