MONTREAL – Continuing with its dedication to expanding local programming across the country, Shaw Media is pleased to announce the launch of its new morning news program at Global Montreal.
Dubbed the Morning News, the three-hour morning show will continue in the Global News’ tradition of giving viewers a mix of timely information and in-depth conversation.
Global Montreal’s Morning News will launch Monday, January 28 and will air weekdays from 6 to 9 a.m.
At the same time, a morning news program will launch in Halifax.
“As Canada’s fastest-growing news organization, the launch of the Morning News in Montreal and Halifax caps off what has been a highly successful morning show expansion across Canada,” says Troy Reeb, Senior Vice President, News and Station Operations.
“Having launched morning shows in all local stations east of Saskatoon throughout the past year-and-a-half, we are proud to be providing viewers with 189 total hours of locally-produced morning news content every week, by far the most of any other network in the country.”
Global Montreal Morning News will be headed by longtime Global Montreal personality Richard Dagenais, with co-host Camille Ross and weather specialist Jessica Laventure.
As the city’s only locally-produced English-language morning show, the Morning News will turn the spotlight on the stories and issues of most importance to the city’s Anglophone community, providing Montrealers with a well-rounded take on the news making waves in the community.
Highlighting this mandate will be the Morning News’ regular use of a central breakfast location in Montreal’s multilingual and culturally-diverse West Island. This will serve as the hub from which Laventure conducts her weather hits every morning. With what essentially amounts to a dynamic on-location set, the Morning News will establish itself in the heart of the community, while giving viewers a chance to regularly interact with members of the show.
