Canada’s Longest Serving Anchor Lloyd Robertson to retire from CTV – July 9, 2010 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – My gosh Lloyd Robertson is retiring as CTV News Anchor.   I’m so sad.  I’m going to be 46 this month and Lloyd been around my whole life.   He started his career in the 50’s and is Canada’s longest serving TV anchor.

I hope it’s his choice to retire and not some corporate spin or ratings grab.   His epitomizes the word professional and class, and as rarely as I have time to watch the news I’ll miss not being able to turn the channel to his newscasts.

Click the image above to see his report on Marijuana from 1975. I know, most of you reading this weren’t alive then and I was 11!    Interesting report 35 years later and shows the utter futility of prohibiting of Marijuana.

Kudos to you Mr. Robertson.   You’ve earned the right to do whatever you want whenever you want when it comes to the news!

    I think that at 76 Lloyd Robertson has earned his retirement. Even though he won’t be reading the news once he’s retired, he will be on various CTV programs like W5. Watching the news read by Lloyd has always been exciting, much more exciting than news read by Peter Mansbridge (CBC)
    Lloyd I congratulate you and wish you well in all your future endeavours.
