It seems that Canadian broadcasters might have a case of the Katie Couric-itis!
Last week, CTV announced that Lisa LaFlamme would be taking over Lloyd Robertson‘s seat for the CTV National News and then just this morning Global TV announced that Emmy Award-winning journalist Dawna “Never met a lipstick I didn’t like!” Friesen will take over for Kevin Newman on Global National.
All of a sudden Peter Mansbridge is in the minority! (Now is your chance Wendy Mesely!)
I honestly don’t have a preference if my evening news anchor is a boy or girl, as long as they have a catchy sign-off. (I’m still bummed that Ryan Seacrest dropped Seacrest-out. I thought it worked.)
Either way it certainly is interesting that so many major networks seem to be switching to the female persuasion. Maybe Lilith Fair is still relevant after all!
