On Friday, October 19th, we are pleased to recognize Lloyd Robertson with the Canadian Club of Toronto’s Lifetime Achievement Award - an award that celebrates the lifelong efforts and leadership of distinguished Canadians. Joined by colleague and long time friend Brian Williams, the longest-running national television news anchor in North America will take your questions in a candid conversation about his life, career and how he got to where he is today.
For sixty years, Lloyd Robertson appeared on Canadian television screens as a journalist and an anchor, bringing us the major events of his day. The longest-serving TV news anchor in Canadian history, first on CBC and then on CTV, Robertson remains one of the most accomplished journalists of our time. His career is truly the story of Canada over the past half century, as he told us about key events like the moon landing, JFK's assassination, Trudeaumania, Terry Fox's run, the Montreal Massacre, 9/11 and the royal weddings.
The Kind of Life It’s Been
In The Kind of Life It's Been, Robertson shares the inside story and the insights he has gained over his long career, from breaking into the business in his hometown of Stratford, Ontario, to joining the CBC, to his highly public departure for CTV to his career as senior editor of CTV News. Filled with fascinating and often hilarious anecdotes about Robertson's career, this book captures the essential tales of our time and is a must for any Canadian interested in the inner workings of a frenetic newsroom.
