CTV Calgary will be waking up Calgarians with a blend of news, weather and traffic as they get set to Launch CTV MORNING LIVE. Jefferson Humphreys, Aisling Tomei, Pearl Tsang and Todd Gallant will breathe new life into morning television with their combination of crackling energy, wit and passion for the city they call home. CTV Morning Live begins on Monday, October 24 at 5:30 a.m. and every weekday morning will deliver an exciting lineup of stories that matter most to Calgarians.
We’ve assembled a terrific team and with it will launch a fresh, local morning show that gives you everything you need in the morning,” said Kelly Johnston, Director, News and Public Affairs, CTV Calgary. “CTV is the network most-connected to Calgarians and, as a result, CTV MORNING LIVE is going to have a strong social media presence. We hope to actually have a coffee and conversation with our viewers, in addition to giving them all the news, weather and traffic they need.
As the co-hosts of CTV MORNING LIVE, Humphreys and Tomei already are well-known personalities amongst viewers in Calgary. Humphreys makes the move to the morning show from the supper hour newscast, where the native Albertan and former co-host of Alberta Primetime has been anchoring and reporting live, often from community events. Humphreys is a graduate of the Broadcasting Program at SAIT Polytechnic and is a climbing and outdoor enthusiast.
Joining Humphreys as co-host, Tomei comes full circle to CTV, having started her broadcast career with CTV Lethbridge when she was known as Aisling Slattery. Born in Ireland, Tomei was raised in Calgary, and stoked her interest in journalism as a contributor for the Calgary Sun and Calgary Herald while in high school. Tomei has a Bachelor of Applied Communications Degree from Mount Royal University and is an active sports enthusiast and competitor.
Humphreys and Tomei are joined on CTV MORNING LIVE by weather specialist Todd Gallant, who keeps viewers up-to-date with weather forecasts. Born and raised in Calgary, Gallant recently came to CTV Calgary News where he is Weather Anchor. Gallant has spent a decade perfecting the forecast process and no one updates weather more often or more effectively. He is also an avid car enthusiast and will always be one your side to forecast yet another perfect day to relax and “cruise”.
Rounding out the morning crew is traffic specialist Pearl Tsang, who reports on what’s happening on the city streets during rush hour. Also a recognizable CTV personality, Tsang hosts CTV Calgary’s In Touch segments, tracking down the city’s hottest events and key community-oriented fundraisers and activities. Tsang is a native Calgarian and graduate of the Broadcasting Program at Mount Royal University. She started her foray into journalism as a junior reporter at the Calgary Herald.
Join CTV on Monday October 24 at 5:30 a.m. as they launch CTV MORNING LIVE.
