CTV News Ottawa Anchor/Reporter



Austin Lee anchors the weekend edition of CTV News Ottawa at Six.

Austin joined the CTV Ottawa team as a weekend news anchor in October 2023 after a two-year stint as the morning live reporter at CTV News Calgary where he was a frequent contributor to CTV News Channel.

His first taste of the news industry came in Fort St. John where he worked as a T.V. and radio reporter covering local stories from across the B.C. Peace Region.

Austin was born and raised in Campbell River, B.C. and outside of the newsroom, he is an avid sports fan who loves getting out for a round of golf or lacing up his skates to slap around a puck.

Starting his career during a pandemic made for an interesting introduction to the industry. Covering everything from crime, politics, economics and sports, Austin is always eager to put in the work to tell honest, balanced and informative stories.
