CTV in B.C. gains two new anchors

CTV B.C.’s popular weather personality and an award-winning journalist are taking over the station’s 6 p.m. anchor seats.

The media organization announced Wednesday that Tamara Taggart, 42, and Mike Killeen, 48, will step in after Bill Good and Pamela Martin both resigned. The new team takes over on Jan. 3.

“We’re over the moon,” Taggart said. “We bring some new energy and excitement to CTV news.” Killeen has been CTV’s Olympics reporter since 2006 and has often filled in as an anchor for weekend newscasts.

Taggart has hosted the station’s breakfast television show and done entertainment coverage for the evening news.

In 2001, she moved to CTV’s weather desk, where she has developed a popular following because of her bubbly personality. She is married to guitarist and record producer Dave Genn of the band 54-40.

CTV B.C.’s evening newscast has 72,000 viewers, down eight per cent from the same time last year, while Global B.C.’s News Hour averages 303,000 viewers.
