CTV National News anchor Lloyd Robertson had his final sign off Sept. 1 after 60 years in broadcast television.

CTV announced last summer that the network's national affairs correspondent Lisa LaFlamme would take over for Robertson as chief news anchor. LaFlamme's first broadcast aired Sept. 5.

LaFlamme becomes the second woman to anchor a weeknight national newscast -- Dawna Friesen currently anchors Global TV's nightly news report. Many of you responded to our gallery with comments on other women anchors. Check out our updated gallery with some new additions.

CTV National's Lisa LaFlamme is set to anchor her first broadcast as chief anchor on September 5. LaFlamme's long list of accomplishments includes intensive coverage of wars, natural disasters and elections. She spent the the last decade covering the aftermath of 9/11 in New York and Afghanistan and was one of the first reporters on site in Haiti after the 2010 earthquakes. With five Gemini nominations in her pocket, we are excited to see the rest of this trailblazer's career unfold.
