TORONTO, Feb. 1 /CNW/ - Channel Zero announces a month long plan to mark
the 10th Anniversary for CHCH's morning show, Morning Live. Starting today, the celebration begins with an exciting contest,
special events, stories and guests on the show, plus an invitation for
viewers to attend a live broadcast on Family Day.
Morning Live kick starts your day with information you can use, every
weekday morning from 5:30 to 9am. Co-hosts Bob Cowan and Annette Hamm deliver ever-changing news, sports, entertainment and business each
half hour. Lori De Angelis takes a live and interactive look at happenings around the community
with great product and food ideas, guest interviews with interesting
people, and a chance to win prizes! Lesley Stewart keeps you up-to-date and on the go with comprehensive traffic updates
and weather forecasts.
With the recently introduced enhanced on-screen information offering,
viewers get up-to-the-minute news headlines, traffic reports, and
weather forecasts any time they tune in, making Morning Live a perfect
companion for commuters living and working west of Toronto and
throughout the Golden Horseshoe.
"February 13th marks the actual date of Morning Live's 10th anniversary, but we wanted
to celebrate with our viewers all month long," says Chris Fuoco, VP,
Sales & Marketing, Channel Zero Inc. "This was our opportunity to thank
our viewers with some great giveaways, and to have some fun by throwing
a party on Family Day."
This month, Morning Live viewers can get up close and personal with the
CHCH morning team and share a few laughs. The show will boast fun
behind-the-scenes profiles on Bob, Annette, Lori, and Lesley, including
favourite moments and off-the-wall stories, plus a look at what they're
like off camera.
