Queen's death: Lisa LaFlamme becomes a pure CityNews correspondent< /p> UPDATE DAY

Reporter Lisa LaFlamme, who recently lost her CTV anchor job amid controversy, quickly found herself working as a correspondent covering the death of Queen Elizabeth II on behalf of CityNews. 

Ms. LaFlamme will cover, from London, the ceremonies and events over the next few days for all of CityNews' platforms, both on radio and television.

“The Queen is the only monarch that most of us have known. We grew up with Her Majesty and we mourn the passing of this remarkable and inspiring woman,” commented the journalist in a press release published by Rogers, the company that owns CityNews.

Lisa LaFlamme's departure from CTV in August after 35 years of service for the English-language network sparked outrage across Canada.

Following the announcement of her departure, which did not was not her decision, media outlets had suggested that Ms. LaFlamme's gray hair may have led to the decision to forgo her services, fueling criticism of ageism against Bell and CTV.

Bell Media responded by opening an independent review of CTV's newsroom.

BCE and Bell Canada President and CEO Mirko Bibic finally assured, at the end August, that the anchor's contract had not been terminated due to her age.

“I am sure that is not the case and I want you to hear from me. Although I would like to say more about Bell Media's decision, we are bound by a mutual agreement negotiated with Lisa, an agreement that we will continue to honor,” he said in a message posted on LinkedIn.
