Why I am a broadcaster: I like getting to the heart of an issue and putting that together in an interesting story.

About Me: I love my work! It is a real honour and responsibility to be the person who gets access to newsmakers, digs for the truth and puts that together each day so viewers understand their city or world better. I take that challenge… and that trust very seriously and wouldn't want to be doing anything else!

On September 9, 1960, CTV News Calgary (CFCN) went on the air for the first time and was the first independent television station in Canada.

The first broadcast was a 30-minute news program, followed by two movies, bringing then owner H. Gordon Love’s life-long dream to reality.

CFCN became a member of the Canadian Television Network (CTV) in October 1961 and one of the station’s longest running shows, The Buck Shot Show, started in 1967.

CTV News Calgary, created a number of firsts in Canadian television, as an owned and operated local of CTV News.
