Born and raised in Ottawa, Lianne has been a member of the team since 1998 covering the sports beat from amateur athletes to the Ottawa Senators.

You name it, she’s done it! This Ottawa native has been profiling people, places and events in our community since joining the TV station in 1998. After ten years as a sports anchor, Lianne made the transition to the morning show in 2008. She also created a health & fitness segment called “Today’s The Day” that aims to help people make healthier life choices one small step at a time.

As a former Canadian elite gymnast, Lianne knows a few things about fitness. She was a provincial champion by age nine, and left the nation's capital in the early 1990s to attend the University of Massachusetts on a full NCAA gymnastics scholarship.
