I spoke with him and wrote: Celine Gallebo ‘Shocked’ by Lisa’s class.

Celine Gallebo called and wrote to friend Lisa Laflame after she was fired from her position as CTV National News anchor for her gray hair.

“Téléjournal” antenna chief since 2009, Céline Galipeau “thrown to the ground” and “shocked” by Lisa LaFlamme’s class by Bell Media.

“How, in 2022, can we deal with an experienced woman like her, who is at the top of the rankings with the most viewed publication in the country?” She told QMI on the sidelines of the unveiling of the media programs on Radio Canada, Tuesday, in Montreal.

For her part, the 65-year-old has not felt “any pressure” from management or even the public over the past years. “I am living proof of that: you can grow old on screen today. […] Why don’t you have gray hair? We have to make a statement: All anchors must wear a gray wig one night in support of Lisa LaFlamme. Launch the challenge! “

Céline Gallebo has “high respect” for Lisa Laflame, a multi-award winner whom she has met often in the field, particularly in Afghanistan. The two women have a similar background, in that they were both foreign correspondents before returning home to take command of a major late-night publication.

Was Lisa Laflame a victim of ageism and gender discrimination, considering that, at 58, she wanted to continue her career and two years on her contract? “Pierre Bruno left when he was ready to leave and to manage TVA it was absolutely crazy to remove him when he was at his peak. That’s what’s so hard to fathom in Lisa’s movie profile,” added Céline Gallebo, thinking to herself what to do next.

final retirement

During her leave, the “Téléjournal” antenna head was notably replaced by Madeleine Bliss Maureen, Marie Maud Denis, Catherine Mercier and Veronique Prince, whom she “faced” long before the Lisa Laflame case upon his eventual retirement.

“[…] I thought to myself that maybe eventually I should start planning my departure because I wouldn’t stay here forever. It’s funny to say, but I grew up in Radio Canada and never felt any pressure from management or the public because of my age. I felt it perhaps for the first time this summer, by myself, without pressure coming from outside, when I saw the other journalists with the energy that I brought to Téléjournal, and refreshment as well.”

Bell Media will conduct an independent evaluation after Lisa LaFlamme’s dismissal after 35 years with CTV News. The company said in a statement that “the climate in [la] The newsroom “will be analyzed” in the coming weeks.”

In addition to her gray hair, she has also been reported to have stood up to her new boss, Michael Melling, over budget cuts inherent in news coverage and editorial choices.

Anne-Marie Dussault, who co-stars in the show “24/60” for season 15 on RDI, thinks like Celine Gallebaud that Lisa Lampel is “cool” with her gray hair. Remember that we do not know all the facts and that a confidentiality agreement may have been reached between the two parties.

“I can give my word that here it will not be a factor [les cheveux gris]. We are behind it. Information has been played by women for a long time, we are aging well on air, accept that we are getting old on air. I am 69 years old, so surely if I decide to go gray and white, I will do so without any worries,” she said, speaking of a “personal choice.”
