Sports Anchor and Director

Lance Brown has been Sports Anchor for CTV NEWS TORONTO since 1985, and today he also serves as CTV Toronto's Sports Director.

Over his long career in sports broadcasting, Brown is most proud of his coverage of the Olympic Games, specifically Calgary 1988, Barcelona 1992 and Lillehammer 1994. One of Brown’s career highlights is being the first to interview Wayne Gretzky after his arrival in Edmonton from Indianapolis in 1977. Gretzky was 17 years old at the time and Brown was a mere 19 years old, himself. In addition, Brown has been part of NHL broadcasts in Edmonton, CFL broadcasts in Regina, and Blue Jays broadcasts in Toronto.

Brown has received recognition professionally and from the community while working at CTV Toronto, devoting much of his spare time to extensive work for children's charities in Southern Ontario. He is a member of the Knights of Columbus and an active member of Big Brothers in North Durham. Brown also spearheads an annual event, building ice rinks for deserving families in need. He was also instrumental in helping to build a community safety village in York Region with proceeds from a golf tournament that he organized.

Graduating with Honours in Television Broadcasting from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT), the Edmonton native's broadcasting career has included stops at BCTV in Vancouver, CKCK-TV Regina and CITV Edmonton.

Brown, his wife Andrea and their children reside in Uxbridge, ON.
