Lloyd Robertson, North America’s Longest-Serving Evening News Anchor, Steps Down

Last night, CTV anchor Lloyd Robertson spent his last night behind the anchor desk at the “CTV National News.” As we reported last year, Robertson–CTV’s chief news anchor and senior editor for 35 years–decided to retire, and Thursday evening was his last night on the air for the network. He ended his final broadcast with his signature goodbye line: “And that’s the kind of day it’s been.”

Robertson outlasted most of his fellow evening newscast from the U.S., having served at the same time as Walter Cronkite, Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw and Peter Jennings. Now He will hand over the anchor desk to Lisa LaFlamme, who will start as the anchor of the “CTV National News” Monday.
