Farah Nasser is a Canadian journalist. In May 2015, she was named by Shaw Media as the co-anchor of Global Toronto's 5:30pm and 6pm newscast, alongside Alan Carter. Previous to this role, she was an anchor with CablePulse24 in Toronto.

She previously anchored Citytv Toronto's CityNews weekend editions at 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. with Roger Petersen until she was laid off on January 19, 2010. CITY-TV announced cuts to several news programs and staff. The weekend news was cancelled, and Nasser was part of a company-wide layoff that affected 6% of CITY's staff, and several on-air presenters.

In 2001, at the age of 20, she landed a summer job with CNN in New Delhi, India. She was then a second-year radio and television student at (then) Ryerson Polytechnic University. As per a photo caption in the GTA Today newspaper of May 11, 2001, she wrote to every bureau CNN had and most required a credit course she didn't have by then, except Miami and New Delhi.
