Wendy Freeman, the award-winning executive who has run CTV News for the past 12 years, is stepping down.
Freeman announced on Wednesday that she was stepping down as vice president of CTV News at the end of the year. His career at CTV spanned over 25 years.
“It is with a great sense of pride and accomplishment that I announce today that I am stepping down as head of CTV News,” she said in a press release.
“I am extremely grateful to all of the great people who have crossed my path over the past 25 years, some of whom have become great friends over the years. Although I am sad to leave such a great team, I am excited for the next chapter of my career.
Since taking the reign of CTV News in 2010, Freeman has been responsible for properties such as CTV National News, CTV News Channel, BNN Bloomberg, CP24 and CTVNews.ca.
Freeman received the President’s Award from the Radio Television Digital News Association in 2015. She received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the same organization earlier this year.
She was named Woman of the Year by Women in Communications and Technology in 2015, and one of Canada’s Most Powerful Women by the Women’s Executive Network in 2012 and 2016.
“Wendy was a trailblazer for women in media, an accomplished broadcaster who has enabled CTV News to be the leading source of news for Canadians for over a decade,” said Karine Moses, Senior Vice President content development and news for Bell Media, which owns CTV News, in the release.
“Her tireless dedication to providing Canadians with the best news of the day has earned her many accolades over the years, but perhaps her most significant contribution has been building the incredibly strong team she leaves behind. As she reflects on her next plans, we wish her the best. “
No replacement for Freeman has been named.
