This is Where Global’s Lynn Colliar Has Gone

Ms. Colliar of Global News posted the message this afternoon via her Twitter stream:
“I know many of you have been wondering where I’ve gone – thank you all for the concern and good wishes.
I’ve decided to step away from journalism for a while – to focus on my career as a Mum! 
I’m excited about having weekends off!
Thanks again for watching over the years lxo”
Courtesy the Vancouver Broadcasters website, here is Lynn’s broadcast history:
Lynn Colliar – Member British Columbia Institute of Technology Journalism program; news writer/reporter/morning news anchor/weekend morning news anchor BCTV/Global TV Vancouver 1992-2018; BCAB Excellence in News Reporting award for A Shred of Evidence; writer/co-producer home invasions against the elderly community forum kNOw more. 


  1. Note that Ms. Colliar has already been away for some months. Was an exit plan being negotiated? Is there workplace turmoil in the Lake City newsroom? Anyone care to begin a list of departures since Jill Krop took command?

  2. I don’t think you can pin the blame on Jill Krop when there is constant departures at other stations. That is just the way broadcasting is these days. It’s a lousy career these days and I can’t imagine the morale is good at any station when there are constant job cuts and departures.

  3. I remember a few years ago Lynn was going to do daytime only. But with the re-shuffling of GLOBAL BC, they put her back to weekends, again. She seemed not very interested after that, rather board. My guess she got a severance package. And probably will end up in a PR job or maybe CTV? You wonder who is next?

    Before attacking someone maybe educate yourself first. Lynn has been on medical leave and so has taken time off to focus on family

    Although details have not been released publicly the banner on her twitter is a field of daffodils so take from that what you will

    I hope she overcomes her health issues and returns at least on a part time basis as it would be nice to see & hear her friendly voice, easy laugh and kind personality in our home

    Get well Lynn!

  5. what’s become of Norma Reid on CTV… after the trials for prime news she disappeared. I believe she should have taken it but then we wouldn’t get the ethnic mix that the stations are looking for these days… we miss her..
