Lloyd Robertson calls it quits

The CTV anchor will step down in 2011, after sharing duties with his replacement


Lloyd Robertson, who has been the news anchorman of CTV since 1976, has announced his retirement. The Stratford native, who is 76, will be stepping down from CTV News With Lloyd Robertson next year. Robertson first came to national attention as a news broadcaster at the CBC; he was the host of The National in the early ’70s. At CTV, where he became sole anchor in 1983, he has announced most of the big events of the last 30 years. He was also parodied as the recurring character “Floyd Robertson” on the sketch comedy SCTV. CTV has already chosen Robertson’s replacement and plans to announce him or her soon; Robertson will share duties with his successor for the next year, before stepping down and moving on to other roles at CTV.

  1. Gotta be Ronaldo.

    • I hope so. She has paid her dues since, like, forever, she does a great job, and the snub would be unbearable if it is NOT her.

      • madeyoulook……..Sandy delivers the news like she has something stuffed up her a$$. She has this scowl on her face that never seems to leave nobody what the story she is reporting on. Emily will go nuts if its another old white guy who replaces "Floyd".

  2. Finally

  3. Wonder if Kory will snap him up.

  4. If he had done this a week earlier, he could have been the GG.

  5. I thought I heard he was gay. Now I hear he is married. Which is it? Or is it both.

    Glad he is going, I was tired of seeing him get younger every year and fluffy comments
