Marking the end of an era in television news

The remarkable career of LLoyd Robertson is at a turning point. Knowing Lloyd, there will no doubt be much more to do. But his final CTV National News as resident anchor will begin at 11 p.m. local time tonight His replacement, Lisa Laflamme will take over as permanent anchor. It's been a long road from small town radio reporter (in Stratford) to a respected authority on the affairs of the world. Some important turning points in his career include the day he caught on with the CBC (above left, he is said to be eating a lunch of bread and jelly at the mike in Winnipeg) and the decision to hire him at CTV News as Harvey Kirck's career neared an end.
