Bruce Frisko 2016

Bruce Frisko has been a favourite with CTV viewers since he moved to the Maritimes more than 20 years ago.

Born in the village of Lestock, Saskatchewan, Bruce started his broadcasting career at CKCK Radio after graduating from the University of Regina in 1990 with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Communications.

After working in television in Lethbridge and Edmonton, Bruce moved east in 1995 and began his Maritime career as co-anchor for Atlantic Pulse with ASN in Halifax.

Soon after, Bruce took on the role of anchor/producer for the CTV Late Night News.  In 2003, he added co-host of Live at 5 to his resumé and most recently has become the anchor/producer for the weekend edition of the CTV News at Six.

Over the years, Bruce has been privileged to cover a number of marquee events including the G7 Summit, Hurricane Juan and a number of provincial elections.

Bruce annually commits to several events sponsored by CTV including Bowl for Kids Sake in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters, the IWK Telethon and Christmas Daddies.
