After almost 38 years at CTV Winnipeg, veteran news anchor Sylvia Kuzyk is calling it quits at the end of the summer.
"It has been an honour and a privilege to serve the people in our community for these many years," Kuzyk said in a prepared statement.
"The time has come however, for me to embark on a new direction and take time for all of those things I have kept on the back burner for years," she said.
"There will never be another Sylvia Kuzyk," Bill Hanson, VP and GM of CTV Winnipeg, said in a press release. People can visit Sylvia’s page and send her best wishes.
Some of Kuzyk’s many awards and achievements include:
- The Order of Manitoba
- Lifetime Achievement Award from the RTNDA
- YM/YWCA Woman of Distinction Award
- Broadcast Excellence Award from the Broadcasters Association of Manitoba
- Toastmasters International Communication and Leadership Award
"To say Sylvia is multi-talented is an understatement", said Karen Mitchell, news director of CTV Winnipeg. "For more than three decades Sylvia has anchored and produced news, written, researched and hosted documentaries, hosted and produced the daily arts and entertainment segment "Spotlight" and presented Manitoba’s No. 1 weather forecast. She has served the newsroom and the community with her time, energy, and enthusiasm. Sylvia is a true leader and a big part of our newsroom’s success. Working with Sylvia is a joy."
