Leslie Roberts, the former Toronto news anchor who resigned from Global TV following conflict of interest allegations, will be the new co-host of CTV Morning Live in Ottawa, CTV has announced. He is to start in June.
Roberts previously worked for Global in Toronto for 15 years as an anchor and executive editor. In 2015, Roberts resigned after the Toronto Star investigated conflict of interest allegations against him.
In 2013, Roberts set up a public relations firm, BuzzPR, with a business partner. The Star revealed there were several cases of Roberts’ BuzzPR clients, such as lawyers or motivational speakers, appearing on Global News. Roberts often interviewed them himself, either for the nightly news or the morning show, the Star wrote.
