Lisa LaFlamme to join CityNews for special coverage of the Coronation of King Charles III

Renowned Canadian journalist Lisa LaFlamme will be returning to CityNews as a special correspondent for the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla.

LaFlamme will be in London, England leading the in-depth coverage alongside reporter Cynthia Mulligan. Starting on May 3, they’ll be reporting daily for CityNews, Breakfast Television, CityNews 680 and 98.1 CHFI. They will bring unique perspectives from Canadians in Britain, royal experts, and more.

“It is a privilege to have the opportunity to bring this historic event to Citytv viewers across Canada,” shared LaFlamme. “Most – including myself – have never seen a coronation with traditions dating back a thousand years so this is a rare event.”

LaFlamme first joined CityNews as a special correspondent for coverage of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral in September. She interviewed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Governor General Mary Simon, among others, on the impact of Queen Elizabeth’s 70-year reign and the future of the monarchy in Canada.

“It’s been eight months since the death of Queen Elizabeth, who was 27 years old on her Coronation Day. Now her son, King Charles at 74, will officially begin a new era with a whole new set of priorities and responsibilities,” LaFlamme noted. “There will be much to discuss and debate and I hope Canadians will join us on this journey.”

Mulligan, a veteran CityNews journalist, also traveled to London alongside LaFlamme to cover the Queen’s funeral and is looking forward to the new era of the monarchy.

“I’m excited to work with Lisa LaFlamme again during this historic time. It was fascinating being in London to cover the Queen’s funeral and I look forward to being there again to see how the British feel about their new King,” said Mulligan.

In addition to CityNews television and radio outlets, ongoing reporting can also be found on CityNews 24/7, Citytv’s video streaming news service, and

Coverage will begin on May 3 before the Coronation is covered live in a special event airing on May 6, starting at 5 a.m. ET and 2 a.m. PT only on Citytv and CityNews 24/7.
