Kathleen Petty is a Canadian radio and television news journalist. An anchor for CBC Newsworld from its launch in 1989 until 2006,[1] programs she hosted for the network included Canada Now and CBC News: Today from Calgary with co-host David Gray.

In 2006, Petty moved to Ottawa to host programming for CBC Radio Ottawa, including the local morning show Ottawa Morning, the provincial Ontario Today and the nationally-broadcast The House, a programme about Canadian politics.[1]

On May 31, 2011 Petty announced that, as of fall 2011, she would be giving up both roles to move back to her native Calgary to take a position hosting the CBC Radio Calgary morning program Calgary Eyeopener.[2] On August 11, 2011, however, Petty announced that she was "delaying a move from Ottawa to her hometown of Calgary so she can deal with a health issue".[3][4]

In October 2012, she revealed that she had been in treatment for breast cancer.[1]
