CTV News Vancouver announced today (August 23) the final phase of what the station is calling a "major refresh".
Veteran investigative journalist Mi-Jung Lee, who career as a reporter began in 1990, and Scott Roberts, who joined CTV Vancouver News in 2012, will become the new co-anchor team for CTV News at Six as of today.
Lee and Roberts will become the successors to Tamara Taggart and Mike Killeen, who began as CTV News at Six co-anchors in 2011. The abrupt ouster of Taggart and Killeen on April 9 this year shocked viewers who expressed support for the duo and disagreement with the decision.
Among the final changes, Scott Hurst will become the lead anchor for CTV News at Noon and CTV News at Five, with senior reporter Michele Brunoro as the Friday anchor of both newscasts.
In addition, Nafeesa Karim will become an anchor and coproducer for weekend editions of CTV News at Six and CTV News at 11:30.More
