Live Reporter CTV Morning Live
CTV Calgary Lane Fraser

Hometown: Calgary, Alberta

Been with CTV Calgary since: 2005

I have enjoyed working for CTV in a number of cities.

I was a reporter for both CTV Ottawa and CTV Toronto, before returning to my hometown and CTV Calgary.

I love my job because of all of the people I get to meet. It is a privilege to be allowed into their homes, and lives, to tell their stories.

In between CTV stints, I worked overseas as a freelance writer for three years, filing stories from the Gulf Region.

I love living in Calgary. There are great restaurants and pubs, theatre, and plenty of green space for dog walking and biking.

I am a mediocre, but enthusiastic tennis player, and despite lots of scary YouTube videos, I have taken up kite-boarding.  So far, so good!

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.
