Bradford-born Christa Ackroyd – one of the main presenters of Yorkshire Television’s Calendar for more than 10 years – left the station in 2001 to anchor the rival BBC Look North from Leeds from autumn that year.  Christa had been with YTV since 1989.

She started her career in journalism with the Halifax Courier and then moved to radio – first with Pennine Radio and then with Radio Aire, where she became the UK’s first female radio news editor. While there she covered the Yorkshire Ripper case and supplied reports to national network radio.
