His career started from CKO Radio Station in Vancouver, but the station is no longer in use. In CKO, he spent five years during the mid-1980s. At that time, he wrote many articles about sports for print publication. Then, he moved onto CKWX Radio as a producer for the Tony Gallagher sports phone-in program. Later in the mid-90s, he joined the CBC as a sports anchor. Afterward, he started to work in Global BC, where he hosted the local news program like News Hour and Global News.

In November 2018, the Burnaby native hosted B.C. journalism's biggest night, Proceeds with fellow Global BC journalist Sophie Lui. In the 12th staging of Comic Vision Vancouver, the members of the British Columbia's South Asian community and the guests represented philanthropic support from the association.

With the Canadian journalist and broadcaster Sophie Lui, who co-anchors Global BC's late-night Global News, Squire supports the fellowships and the student journalism prizes. In the fundraising gala chaired by the duo of BobRai and ManjotHallen, more than 400 guests attended, including Minister of National Defence Harjit Sajjan and Lieutenant Governor of B.C. Janet Austin.

In early October 2020, the Global News BC celebrated its 60 years of reporting. In their official site, they shared their experience being on the front lines of major breaking stories. Out of some of the memorable moments captured by the Global BC, they shared the participation of anchor Sophie Lui and Squire Barnes in the Pacific National Exhibition and the fun they had at the Playland Amusement Park.

This was not hard news; instead, it was about the anchors eating lunch while riding the PNE's breakdance ride. Surprisingly, this is not the first time they have done this. Previously, Barnes did whatever he could to eat chile while Lui did her best to put on her makeup. Likewise, in 2018, they tried to eat a super foot-long hot dog wrapped with macaroni and drink slushie while on a breakdance ride at the PNE.       

Is Squire Barnes Married?

Talking about his personal life, he is not a married guy. However, Squire is often linked with the co-host of Global BC, Randene Neill, who is married to a mysterious guy. His fan often bequeaths the question of their relationship on social media. On 18 September 2013, one of his followers sarcastically tweeted whether Rendene is his wife or not. But, the media personality has remained utterly silent when it comes to addressing the rumors related to his personal life.
