CTV Morning Live Weekend Host & Majic 100 Morning Host

Angie is a hometown girl born and raised in the nation's capital. Angie got her start in television right after graduating from Algonquin College’s Broadcasting program.

Angie was first hired as Creative Services Producer for The New RO in 1999, working out of the Pembroke Station. A short time later she secured a position with the Creative Services team in Ottawa and made her move back to her hometown.

Angie worked for several years behind the camera before stepping into the spotlight and joining the news team as Entertainment and Weather Specialist in 2001.

Just two years later, she moved from the evening news to join the morning show as the live-on-location co-host.  She is now CTV Morning Live's weekend co-host alongside Lianne Laing for the Saturday morning edition of the show.

You can hear Angie Monday to Friday on our sister radio station MAJIC 100, as co-host of the MAJIC Morning show with Stuntman Stu and Trisha Owens, from 5:30-9am.

What I love about my job:

“Is this work that I’m doing here? It really amazes me that I get to be paid for what I love to do. I’m living the dream! Through my job I get to connect with so many people in our community on a daily basis. I consider it a privilege that our listeners and viewers invite us into their homes and lives everyday and rely on us for the information that matters to them and their families. I am truly thankful for the opportunities I've been given in my career and feel very blessed to enjoy going to work as much as I do."
