Her parents separated when she was young and she moved with her mother and younger sister to Chilliwack, British Columbia where she graduated from high school in 1983. In 1984 she represented Chilliwack in the Miss Canada pageant [1]. She worked for a weekly magazine in Chilliwack for ten months and as a reporter at both the Chilliwack Progress and the radio station CHWK before moving on to a radio station in Kamloops, British Columbia and then a radio station newsroom in Prince George, British Columbia.

Swain joined CBC's Winnipeg station CBWT in 1990. She started as a reporter for the local news program 24 Hours and quickly became a national reporter after being recognized for her coverage of the 1997 Manitoba Flood. She covered Manitoba and Saskatchewan for The National before becoming anchor of 24 Hours. In 2000, Swain's work on 24 Hours was recognized when she won the first of three Gemini Awards for Best News Anchor. By winning the most prestigious award in Canadian television, she broke a streak that saw CBC's The National anchor Peter Mansbridge and CTV's national news anchor Lloyd Robertson swap the trophy back and forth for many years.

In 2000 she anchored the Winnipeg portion of CBC's Canada Now before leaving for the investigative program Disclosure.


Initially, Swain commuted to Toronto from Winnipeg while working on Disclosure, but in 2003, she and her family moved to Oakville, Ontario. A year later, "Disclosure" was cancelled, and Swain became the host of CBC News Toronto. Since then, she has frequently substituted for Peter Mansbridge as anchor of CBC's flagship news show, The National.

On August 6, 2010, she stepped down as anchor of CBC News Toronto to move to the CBC News Investigative unit, where she is currently Senior Investigative Correspondent and makes frequent reports on The National. In 2014 she became an anchor on CBC News Network. In 2016, she began hosting a brand new program - The Investigators with Diana Swain - which looks at the work of investigative journalists and the challenges and ethical questions they face in their work. She can also be heard on CBC Radio and can be seen on

Swain received an honorary degree from Humber College in June, 2010.

Personal life

Swain has two children: son Mason (born 1995) and daughter Lara (born 1998). She graduated in 1987 from the British Columbia Institute of Technology with a Diploma of Technology in Broadcast and Media Communications, and is the 2006 recipient of the institute's Distinguished Alumni Award for Significant Contributions to a Trade or Industry.
