In 2008 Lyn appeared several times as a guest on local TV station CTV answering questions relating to budgeting and finance. Lyn was also invited to appear on Rob's Country in September 09.

Sadly the CTV building was destroyed in the earthquake which devastated Christchurch on 22 February 2011and many lives have been lost.  Heartfelt sympathies go out to the families of those who have lost so much and to those who are still waiting to hear about their missing loved ones.  My thoughts are with you.

Update:  CTV Alive and Well!

Congratulations to the remaining members of CTV family in getting the channel up and running in less than two months since the earthquake that devastated the team on 22 February 2011...and in cramped temporary premises.  They've done it in memory of their workmates and went to air 18 April.
