Alison Smith, host of CBC Radio's The World at Six, has announced she is leaving at the end of June. She said she had been considering her departure for some time.
Smith began her journalism career covering municipal and provincial politics in Toronto in 1977, before moving onto national affairs and business news for CBC's The National during the 1980s.
Throughout her career, she has served as host of many programs — including This Day, The Lead, Newsworld Reports, Sunday Report and CBC News Morning — and as CBC Television's longtime Washington correspondent. Smith, who is 59, moved to anchoring The World at Six in 2009.
CBC Newsworld anchor Nancy Wilson has also announced her retirement.
Wilson joined CBC Newsworld in 1991 and previously worked on CBC-TV's "The Journal" and on CTV's Canada-AM.
