Dawn Chubai sang with the Edmonton Musical Theatre Group as a teenager and then started singing jazz. After years of working in public relations and moonlighting as a jazz singer, she fell into a career in television. A-Channel Edmonton approached Dawn in 1999 about working at the station, where she then spent five years as a weather broadcaster. In 2004, she relocated to Vancouver and is currently employed by City TV Vancouver as a TV Host for Breakfast Television. She occasionally hosts CityTV's CityLine and has hosted several seasons of the popular Realty Television. Dawn has progressed into numerous television and film roles, along with several national commercial spots.
In 1999, Dawn was awarded Best Jazz Artist by the Alberta Recording Industry Association and, in 2004, she received the Broadcast Performer of Tomorrow awarded by the British Columbia Association of Broadcasters.
