Not one to accept a stalled future, our Krista Erickson has leaped (lept?) from the CBC to the abyss, or as the eastern press likes to call it "Fox News North", the soon-to-be Quebecor gabfest channel.
Here is the formal au revoir issued this AM:
After over a decade as a reporter and host, Krista Erickson has decided to leave CBC News.
Krista joined CBC in her hometown of Winnipeg in 1999 and worked on a variety of programs including Disclosure, Country Canada, and It’s a Living. She became a reporter in Winnipeg in 2001, again contributing to many programs including The National and Marketplace, and receiving a Gemini nomination for Best Lifestyle/Practical Information segment.
In 2004 Krista became the host of Winnipeg’s supper hours news program.
In 2006 she moved to Ottawa and became a network reporter in our Parliament Hill Bureau, covering politics for The National and cbcnews.ca.
