Born on July 25th 1964 in Kitchener Ontario, Lisa La Flamme gained her early education at St. Mary’s high school in that city. After completing high school, she spent eighteen months in France, before enrolling at The University of Ottawa. On graduation, in the summer of 1988 she began what was to be a high-profile career in broadcasting when she was hired into the Kitchener CKCO-TV CKKW-AM & CFCA-FM newsroom as a summer ‘fill-in’, helping with script preparation for TV newscasts and preparing and announcing radio newscasts to cover off vacationing staff. As the summer ended, News Director Ron Johnstone had been so impressed with Lis’s work that he offered her a regular part-time job as a reporter for both the TV and radio stations. This led to a full-time appointment to the News department in 1991, and then in October 1994 she was appointed as Monday-Friday news co-anchor for CKCO-TV’s 6 pm and 11:30 pm newscasts. Lisa’s on-air work came to the attention of the Network, and in 1997 she was invited to join CTV, where she first worked as a reporter and anchor for the CTV Newsnet Channel. She also did consumer reports for CTV News, before becoming the prime news anchor for CTV Newsnet in 1998. She occupied this role for two years, and then in 2000 became Parliamentary correspondent for CTV News. In 2001 Lisa took on another important role, this time as co-anchor of CTV’s Canada AM daily morning show. Then, after two years of early rising, in 2003 Lisa became National Affairs Correspondent for CTV National News, and over the next seven years she was most of the time on the road travelling to some of the world’s most dangerous locations to cover everything from wars to elections to natural disasters. She was in Rome to report on the death of Pope John Paul II; reported from Sri Lanka on the devastation from the Tsunami that hit South Asia; was in New Orleans to cover the impact Hurricane Katrina had on New Orleans; and journeyed to Haiti several times to cover the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake and political turmoil gripping the country.
