Tracy Tong Leaves CTV Toronto For Plum Post At Global

First it was Miranda Anthistle who bolted from CTV to become a general assignment reporter for Global. Now the network has landed another fish from the CTV pond. Tracy Tong has jumped ship to anchor the 11 PM newscasts for Global in Toronto, Montreal, Halifax and New Brunswick. 

Her predecessor, Crystal Goomansingh, will take over as European Bureau Chief. 

Tong assumes her new role on June 4th. 

It seems to me I just saw her recently reporting for CTV Toronto. I'm guessing that means her contract allows for that quick a transition, which is pretty unusual these days or she worked until it ran out. Also sad to see the end of truly local late night news on the network.
