Is Graham Richardson Married? If Yes, then Who is his wife?
Yes, the TV journalist Graham Richardson is a married man. Richardson tied the knots with his wife, Leigh Anne Richardson. Although her Instagram account is kept in private, she has mentioned in her bio that she is the mother of two, dancer, and hockey player. Also, Graham has not disclosed the information regarding her wedding date, venue, etc.
During their marriage, the lovely couple gave birth to two sons. One of their sons is Jack Richardson, who mentions himself as a hockey guy. Back in June 2019, Graham posted a picture of his high school graduation so, possibly Jack is now a University student. It seems to me that he has maintained a balance between his personal life and his professional career. He often shares images having fun with his family by traveling to different places, cycling, gathering, and so on. Furthermore, he has a intimate relationship with his father. Besides, there is no sign of him getting a divorce with his wife.
The father of two started with his journalism career when he was assigned a job for CBC Calgary as an editor and reporter in 1993. Richardson liked the station enough to keep him onto for four years. In 1997, when he went to work for ITV news station based in Edmonton, Richardson made a move to the next step of his career. His second stop as a reporter also lasted four years, giving Richardson a periodical experience worth almost a decade.
In the year 2001, Richardson joined the ranks of Global Television Network as a news anchor in Toronto. He hosted Focus Ontario, a flagship program. Richardson is set to find his permanent home in 2004. He went on to work as a reporter for CTV Toronto. He has now been working and counting for networks' CTV brand for over a decade.
Leigh Anne's husband had a job as a parliamentary reporter when he first began at CTV and sometimes would work as an anchor for a program called Mike Duffy Live. Once Mike Duffy had to quit CTV, that led to some filling gaps for the network. The station opted to call Richardson. Graham Richardson got a few weeks to host the On the Hill show.
One of Richardson's most engaging journalism experiences was being a Parliamentary correspondent. Richardson sought to capture and highlight the conflict over confidential nuclear reactor files related to the Chalk River. Some sides tried to hide their involvement with the nuclear reactor. Richardson decided to find out the facts and to put the news to the public in Canada.
CTV announced in December 2009 that Graham Richardson was replacing Max Holding, who had chosen to retire from the news channel. Richardson would take over from the previous role of Keeping as a co-news anchor at CTV Ottawa starting in 2010. To get such a high place was a significant achievement for Richardson.
Richardson has covered all kinds of news topics throughout his career, including film news, Olympic Games, hurricanes, and current events occurring in Canada and around the world. As the Chief News Anchor on CTV, Richardson now enjoys himself on top. Richardson has seen everything else in the news world, from reporting on a pet store's fundraising fundraiser to dramatic coverage of Hurricane Katrina.
