Lisa LaFlamme will replace Lloyd Robertson as anchor of CTV National News, the network announced on Friday. Ms. LaFlamme is a TV news veteran who has subbed for Mr. Robertson regularly. The former Canada AM co-host and parliamentary correspondent is considered a strong reporter on live news events, such as during the recent G20 protests in Toronto.
