eTalk anchors coverage of TIFF as the official media partner of the Roy Thomson Hall Gala Red Carpets

As Hollywood heads North, Canada’s #1 entertainment show ETALK gets the best access as the official media partner of the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival® Roy Thomson Hall gala red carpets.

For the very first time, ETALK will produce a live red carpet show from their coveted prime spot on the gala red carpets at Toronto’s Roy Thomson Hall, delivering interviews with mega-stars in attendance live to fans inside the theatre and at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, and then later to viewers at home.

An integral part of ETALK’s unparalleled and comprehensive Festival coverage, all the red carpet highlights will be delivered to viewers nightly on ETALK at 7 p.m. ET on CTV and 6 p.m. ET on E! (visit and to confirm local broadcast times).

As the only Canadian entertainment program to be an official Festival media partner, ETALK is poised to deliver its most exclusive and extensive coverage ever as it celebrates a decade at the festival.

Anchors Ben Mulroney and Tanya Kim share their favourite Festival moments in the retrospective special ETALK: 10 YEARS AT TIFF, premiering on the first day of the festival, Thursday, Sept. 8 at 7:30 p.m. ET on CTV.

The half-hour special also includes footage from ETALK’s first year covering the Festival, and highlights the key moments ETALK has shared with celebrities over the past 10 years.

With anchors Mulroney and Kim, as well as reporters Lainey, Danielle McGimsie, Traci Melchor and Susie Wall, ETALK brings viewers unprecedented celebrity coverage and exclusive access. Once again, ETALK feeds Bell Media’s comprehensive Festival coverage, giving viewers the best ticket in town as they cover the hottest parties, interview the biggest names, hang out in the most sought-after lounges, and mark their spot from their prime location at Roy Thomson Hall as the official media partner of the gala red carpets at the theatre.
