Tom Gould
Tom Gould, a quintessential newsman who helped launch Canada AM and served as vice-president of news for CTV News, has died. He was 84.
Gould spent more than 50 years in journalism with bylines across television, print and radio. He is credited with helping guide CTV’s news coverage from the time he joined the network in the mid-1960s.
As vice-president of news, Gould helped steer the network’s coverage and was on deck during the years that Lloyd Robertson and Harvey Kirk sat at the anchor’s desk. He was also responsible for handling W5, news specials and other CTV News programming.
Gould also worked in front of the camera as a national correspondent for CTV News, and was a regular television presence on “The Backgrounder”  that offered analysis to the daily headlines.
He is remembered as a bullish reporter and smart newsman who had a sensitive touch with his stories.
Gould died of cancer at his home in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
