TORONTO, Dec. 12, 2012 /CNW/ - Global News is once again redefining morning television, this time to a national
audience. After more than a year on air in Toronto, Global News is pleased to announce that The Morning Show will be bringing its brand of in-depth conversations and high profile
interviews to all Global stations across the country beginning Monday, January 7 from 9-9:30am ET/PT.
Led by host Liza Fromer and featuring an all-star team of energetic broadcast professionals, The Morning Show will provide Canadians with an informed perspective on the issues and
concepts making headlines across the country. Airing immediately
following Global News' local morning programs, the national show will
move away from the traditional newswheel format to give viewers a
thoughtful take on the stories they care most about. The Morning Show will also continue in its tradition of engaging A-list celebrities,
politicians and experts alike in the intelligent manner that has
already set the show apart from the competition in Toronto.
"The development of a national morning program is an important piece in
Global News' overall strategy and represents our continued dedication
to providing Canadians with the most original and valuable news content
possible," says Troy Reeb, Senior Vice-President, Global News and Station Operations. "We're proud to be launching Canada's only conventional network
breakfast program, while giving viewers a show that dovetails perfectly
into our already-established local morning news programs."
Not only does the national launch of The Morning Show put a perfect exclamation point on Global News' local morning news
offerings across the country, but it also caps off what has been a
highly successful breakfast programming expansion. With a total of four
local shows launched in communities across the country in the past two
years, Global News now holds Canada's largest morning show audience in
the key news-relevant Adults 25-54 demographic*. With two more morning
shows slated to launch in Montreal and Halifax early next year, Global
News is ensuring that this morning dominance will continue.
