For more than three decades Christine Bentley was the trusted voice of CTV News Toronto, forging her career during a transformational time in media when women were an unproven faction within the industry. Bentley cut her teeth on municipal and provincial politics, quickly becoming a trusted figure in the community and winning the loyalty of hundreds of thousands of viewers across southern Ontario. In 2009, when the Olympic torch made its way across the country, Christine Bentley was chosen to carry it through Scarborough. 



In 2012, after 35 years with CFTO she moved on to pursue other interests, leaving a legacy of professionalism and community involvement. Christine Bentley has given her time and energy to charities such as the Rouge Valley Health System, The Children’s Wish Foundation, CTV’s Toy Mountain Campaign, the Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, the Women’s Brain Health Initiative and Habitat for Humanity. 



Christine is the recipient of the Career Achievement Award from Women In Film and Television, the Paul Harris Fellowship Award for Community Service, the Toastmasters International Communications and Leadership Award for Outstanding Service, the Consumers’ Choice Woman of the Year Award and the Famous People Players Daring to Dream Award.
