CTV Calgary launches CTV Morning Live, Oct. 17

CTV Calgary delivers an exciting wakeup call with the launch of CTV MORNING LIVE, weekday mornings, beginning Monday, October 17 at 5:30 a.m. Familiar local broadcast personalities Jefferson Humphreys, Aisling Tomei, Pearl Tsang and Todd Gallant lead the broadcast with everything viewers need in the morning. 

The all-new, local morning show serves up a fun, engaging, and trustworthy blend of news, weather and traffic that is most relevant to Calgarians. Humphreys, Tomei, Tsang and Gallant breathe new life into morning television with their combination of crackling energy, wit and passion for the city they call home. 

“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 has been anchoring and reporting live, often from community events. 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.

Humphreys and Tomei are joined on CTV MORNING LIVE by weather specialist Todd Gallant, who keeps viewers up-to-date with weather forecasts, and traffic specialist Pearl Tsang, who reports on what’s happening on the city streets during rush hour. Born and raised in Calgary, Gallant recently came to CTV Calgary News where he is Weather Anchor. Also a recognizable CTV personality, Tsang hosts the CTV Calgary’s In Touch segments, tracking down the city’s hottest events and key community-oriented fundraisers and activities.
