Calgary, Alberta – (June 9, 2020) – RTDNA Canada is pleased to honour Terry Vogt with an RTDNA Canada Lifetime Achievement Award for his outstanding service and continued excellence in his journalism career.
“Terry is a true Albertan and a trusted and respected voice in Alberta,” said RTDNA Canada President Fiona Conway. “Terry has covered news from natural disasters to uplifting human interest stories. He has won many awards throughout his career and we are thrilled to be able to give Terry this recognition from RTDNA Canada.”
A special video celebrating Terry’s incredible career contributions is available below.
A distinguished alumnus of Lethbridge College, and one of the most renowned and respected news journalists in western Canada, Terry is the News Director of CTV Lethbridge.
Terry started his career in 1972 as a DJ at a small station in Crowsnest Pass, Alberta, before transitioning into news reporting. He joined CTV Lethbridge when the station first went to air in 1984 and has grown and evolved with the station ever since.
Despite repeated attempts to lure him away to larger markets, and to CTV’s national broadcast, Terry has chosen to remain in Lethbridge, making him one of the most trusted news voices in southern Alberta. His passion for the industry, for telling stories, and mentoring younger broadcasters is what drives him every day.
He has been a strong community booster and regularly volunteers at the Lethbridge Soup Kitchen, co-ordinates a community outreach program, and always makes time to talk, listen, and share a coffee with the residents of the city he calls home.
