Former CTV Ottawa news anchor Leigh Chapple passed away at home this morning at the age of 58.
Chapple retired from CTV News in May of 2012 after connecting with viewers for more than three decades. Her 36-year career in broadcast brought a familiarity to the homes of thousands in Eastern Ontario and West Quebec.
Chapple was also a long time instructor at Algonquin College.
Her husband Dean Holmes was also a long time employee with CTV. They retired at the same time and looked forward to spending more time together.
