A master's graduate from Columbia University's journalism program, Toth started her journalism career in Nova Scotia as an undergrad, when she worked as the Dalhousie Gazette's Opinions Editor. After successfully staking out the university president outside his office for a story, Toth realized that nearly no other industry would not only tolerate such behavior, but actually applaud it. She decided to become a journalist professionally and has yet to look back.
Toth now comes to WSHU after working as a news blogger for the Village Voice, a Pulitzer Prize winning news weekly, where she reported on protests, policing and real estate. When Eric Garner's death rocked the city and thousands of people took to the streets, she wrote a story on white privilege within the protests. That story was discussed by independent reporters throughout New York and became the most-viewed piece on the blog that week.
Toth has also reported on queer refugee struggles for Xtra! Canada, and has wrote about religion and sexuality for the Webby nominated online magazine Religion Dispatches. She enjoys cat videos, cupcakes, and Tegan and Sara albums. Her favorite public media figure is CBC's Yamma Mamma, a beloved Canadian icon and anthropomorphic yam.
