  • Lloyd Robertson, O.C. (né le 19 janvier 1934 à Stratford en Ontario) est le chef d'antenne du réseau canadien CTV dans l'émission CTV Nightly News. Avant de se joindre à CTV, Robertson était l'animateur de l'émission The National pour Radio-Canada de 1970 à 1976, et avant cela, dans les années 1960, il animait une émission appelée CBC Weekend. Il a quitté la CBC parce qu'il était épuisé avec les règles syndicales qui interdisaient aux animateurs de nouvelles d'écrire leurs propres scénarios et de participer aux décisions éditoriales concernant les télédiffusions. De 1976 à 1984, Robertson coanimait CTV News avec le défunt Harvey Kirck. Lorsque Kirck quitta CTV en 1984, Robertson est devenu l'animateur principal pour le réseau. Il est si bien connu qu'il a été parodié par Joe Flaherty dans le programme humoristique de SCTV. (fr)
