Vancouver talkshow Urban Rush goes national

The top-rated Vancouver daily talkshow Urban Rush has gone national with Shaw and Shaw Direct.

Renamed The Rush, the Michael Eckford and Fiona Forbes-hosted show premiered this week to a national audience.

“We’ve always wanted to take our show to the national stage and we can’t wait to bring The Rush to all of Canada,” said Forbes.

“Our goal is not just to deliver really compelling television content, but to also interact with our viewers and guests in ways that help us establish a deeper connection with them. We’re going to be taking advantage of all kinds of social media – Facebook, Twitter, Google Hangouts – in ways that have never been done before. We’re also using live streaming technology so our viewers can interact with us while we’re taping and see what goes on both in front of the camera and off it!”

The show is airing weeknights in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba on Shaw and on Shaw Direct in Ontario.
