So, Lisa LaFlamme will replace Lloyd Robertson. I don’t have a lot of thoughts on why she was chosen (the fact that she’s younger than Sandie Rinado might have been a factor, but who knows how important that actually was). The one thing I can notice is the very orderly, efficient process by which this was done: Robertson obviously coordinated his departure with the network so that they could announce his successor immediately, and give the successor a year to settle in. Orderly transitions don’t always make everything nice in the end, but they don’t usually hurt, I guess.
Thoughts on the upcoming LaFlamme era?
