Graham Richardson is the Chief News Anchor for CTV News at Six and afternoon news anchor on Newstalk 580 CFRA. He joined CTV Ottawa in January 2010, after nearly four years covering Parliament Hill for CTV National News.
Before his assignment on Parliament Hill, Richardson was CTV’s Los Angeles Bureau Chief, covering the Michael Jackson trial, Hurricane Katrina, space shuttle landings, the Mexican election, and the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy.
Over the last several years here in the nation’s capital, Graham has anchored the newscast from the scene of the tragic Ottawa city bus – VIA train crash in the autumn of 2013; he led coverage from the floor of the Ontario Liberal Leadership Convention in January 2013; and he anchored CTV Ottawa’s 2013 Bell Let’s Talk Day regional coverage.
Named one of Ottawa’s “Top 25 in the Capital 2013” by Ottawa Life Magazine, Richardson is an active member of the community, participating in many charitable fundraising projects including the CN Ride for CHEO. This type of charitable event allows him to match his passion for cycling with worthwhile causes in the community, while he maintains his 2019 goal of 365 days of activity.
When he’s not working or volunteering, Richardson and his wife Leigh Anne can be found at ski hills and rinks across the region, watching their two sons, Jack and Bennett, on the ice and on the slopes. You may also run into him on his bike at Gatineau Park, or at one of the many other local hot spots for cyclists!
We are very pleased that he has decided to ride with us on September 28, 2019, for the Foundation Ride for Light!
