RRC grad Krista Erickson to anchor Sun News Network

April 21, 2011

Red River College graduate Krista Erickson (Creative Communications, 1999) has been tapped to host the Sun News Network’s Canada Live, a hard-hitting headline news show that debuted earlier this week.

The Gemini-nominated TV reporter and anchor joined the Sun News team after 12 years with the CBC, where she began her career as an entry-level researcher, and later worked as the local evening news anchor and national parliamentary bureau correspondent.

“If I had to describe (Canada Live), it’s a contrarian take on the news events of the day with unexpected angles and points of view that you might not hear anywhere else,” Erickson recently said of the show.

“Sun News has been an incredible fit, and I feel more at ease and comfortable here than any other professional experience.”
