Lloyd Robertson, CTV’s long-standing news anchor, will appear at the Toronto Reference Library’s Bram and Bluma Appel Salon on Wed., Nov. 21, 2012 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to talk about his new memoir, The Kind of Life It’s Been. CTV’s Seamus O’Regan will moderate the discussion.
Robertson’s career spans 60 years including 35 years as the anchor of the CTV National News from 1976 to 2011. His baritone voice opened the door to a career that included coverage of the first man on the moon, John F. Kennedy’s assassination, the Trudeau years, 9/11 and the royal weddings. He is currently the co-host of CTV’s W5.
Robertson, who has served longer than any other television news anchor in history, was appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada, received a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame and received the Gemini Award for Best Host, Anchor or Interviewer in 1992, 1994 and 1997.
