      Today (November 5), CBC Vancouver announced its new lineup for its TV newscasts.

      Mike Killeen and Anita Bathe will cohost the 6 p.m. CBC Vancouver News, with senior meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe.

      Killeen, whose career in journalism spans over 30 years, was a CTV News at Six co-anchor with Tamara Taggart before being cut during a major "refresh" at the station in April. (They were succeeded by Mi-Jung Lee and Scott Roberts in August.)
