Canada got its first-ever hijab-wearing anchorwoman on Friday.
Panamanian-born Ginella Massa wrote on her Facebook page: "This is not just a big deal for me personally-As far as I know, no woman in hijab has ever anchored a major newscast in Canada."
Working for CityNews, Massa filled in as an anchor for the Friday late newscast.
Massa also became the country's first headscarf-wearing TV news reporter in 2015.
CityNews is the news/current affairs division of City, a Canadian network including six metropolitan TV stations as well as a cable service.
