Gord Martineau wins Best News Anchor

“CityNews” Gord Martineau took top honours at the final night of The Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television’s “22nd Annual Gemini Awards”, winning Best News Anchor.

“CityNews at Six” Anchor Gord Martineau took home the Gemini for Best News Anchor at last night’s ceremony in Regina. The annual celebration of excellence in Canada’s English-language television industry unites people from both sides of the camera to honour the past year’s most prominent productions in 91 program, craft and performance categories.

“Gord Martineau is the center of all things CityNews,” said Stephen Hurlbut, Vice-President, News Programming, Citytv and Vice-President and General Manager, CP24. “It has been our privilege to work with Gord and we are absolutely thrilled for our friend and colleague.”

Gord had led the “CityNews” team since 1977, covering elections, international news and local stories, while also lending his name and donating his time to great causes such as Citytv’s Herbie Day. Gord was also honoured earlier this year with an RTNDA Lifetime Achievement Award for his 30 years of dedication to the Canadian television industry.
