Lisa LaFlamme is now the former Chief News Anchor and Senior Editor for CTV National News. She'd held that position since 2011 when she replaced Lloyd Robertson, but was informed on June 29th that Bell Media made a "business decision" to end her contact with CTV News.
Here's how Lisa's CTV News bio page read on the day her exit became public.
As Chief News Anchor and Senior Editor of CTV NATIONAL NEWS WITH LISA LAFLAMME since 2011, Lisa LaFlamme leads the country’s #1 newscast where she has cemented her role as the face of news in Canada.
Never far from the heart of the story, LaFlamme brings Canadians an up-close look at the biggest stories unfolding across Canada and around the world. In May 2018, LaFlamme travelled to Windsor to lead CTV News’ live special of the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. In 2017, she reported from the devastated flood regions of Texas and Florida, and travelled to northern France to lead CTV News’ special coverage of the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. Led by LaFlamme, CTV News delivered live coverage of the inauguration of Donald Trump from Washington D.C. in January 2017; reported on the death of Fidel Castro from Havana in November 2016; and broadcast live from Paris in November 2015 in the aftermath of the coordinated terrorist attacks across the city.
I invited Lisa to appear on Toronto Mike'd when I corresponded with her in May 2020, but it never materialized. I'm still hopeful we can make that happen.
Omar Sachedina has now been named Chief News Anchor and Senior Editor of CTV National News.
