Robert Lacroix

Robert Lacroix has been a media producer for 25 years with Carleton University’s Instructional Media Services department. A major part of his job is training third and fourth-year students in camera operation, video editing and producing newscasts and current affairs programs. Robert also edits documentaries produced by graduate students, a number of whom have had their work aired on major Canadian networks.

Lacroix started his broadcast journalism career three decades ago at the Mid-Canada Television Network, CFCL, in Timmins, Ontario. At CFCL, Robert was part of the on-air team handling telecine, camera and on-air switching duties.

He then directed the 6 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. news shows for four years before moving to Ottawa where he started working at the local CTV affiliate, CJOH. He remained at CJOH for five years, handling on-air switching, VTR playbacks and commercial co-ordination for CTV CFL football games.

From CJOH he came to the Instructional Media Services Department at Carleton. His responsibilities at IMS also include shooting and directing in-house and external productions for government agencies and private companies.

In Butare, Lacroix will be working closely with Carleton colleague Kanina Holmes, teaching broadcasting and working to build the capacity of the broadcast journalism component of the School of Journalism and Communication program.
