Early enough to make your coffee maker jealous…

CHCH provides stiff competition for morning shows across the GTA!

TORONTO, Sept. 7, 2011 /CNW/ - Today Channel Zero announced that Morning Live First Edition - the first morning show to hit the airwaves at 4am in Canadian history - will debut on CHCH on Monday, September 12th at 4am, and airs every weekday morning from 4 to 5:30am.

Geared to the earliest of the early risers and perfect for commuter nation, Morning Live First Edition will get viewers up, prepped for the day and out the door on time. It caters not just to suburban commuters and predawn shift workers, but also to grateful insomniacs, first responders, parents of infants and, yes, even the occasional late-night club-hopper.

Hosted by a lively crew of two, Tim Bolen and Jaclyn Colville are sure to perk up your morning mood.  As the show's main Host, viewers may recognize Tim as the previous host of Sun TV's Inside Jam. Joining him on set is Traffic and Weather Specialist Jaclyn, who already feels at home, having spent time behind and in front of the camera on CHCH's main morning show, Morning LiveDon Jonescu also joins the team as Producer, having built a successful career at The Weather Network, Sportsnet and TSN.

"For the past decade, viewers across the province have woken up with Bob and Annette on CHCH's Morning Live (weekdays 5:30 to 9am). Morning Live First Edition is a perfect complement to our schedule, serving a broader audience, earlier than any other station in the country," said Mike Katrycz, CHCH News Director.

This Fall, CHCH continues its tradition in news excellence.  Currently airing 76.5 hours of local news every week - the addition of Morning Live First Edition takes the total weekly hours count up to 84 - more than any other local television station in North America. Just another example of how Channel Zero continues to push the envelope in Canadian broadcasting.
