Filled with fascinating and often hilarious anecdotes, Robertson''s #1 bestselling memoir captures the essential tales of our era

For sixty years, Lloyd Robertson lived his dream of working in broadcasting, bringing us the major events of the day. The longest-serving national TV news anchor in Canadian history, first for CBC and then for CTV, Robertson remains one of the most accomplished journalists of our time. His career reflects the history of the past half century, as he reported on JFK''s assassination, the moon landing, Trudeaumania, Terry Fox''s run, the Montreal Massacre, 9/11 and royal weddings, among many other pivotal moments.

In The Kind of Life It''s Been, Robertson shares the inside story and the experience he has gained over his long career, from breaking into the business of radio in his hometown of Stratford, Ontario, to joining the CBC and moving to television, to his highly public departure for CTV and his career as senior editor of CTV News. He shares off-camera momentsas well, recounting personal stories about his family and friends as he sought to balance his life as a husband, father and journalist.

Written with candid reflections and a good dose of wit, The Kind of Life It''s Been will entertain Robertson fans and any Canadian interested in the inner workings of a frenetic newsroom.
