In 2006, Fromer hosted her own series, The List, for Shaw Media’s SLICE network and was a regular contributor
to Newstalk 1010’s Moore in the Morning program. Fromer has also co-authored a series of children's books, the first of which is due out in September, 2011.

Why I Took it All Off on Air

My co-host Kris Reyes told me that during a weekend lunch her three-year-old niece, Ella, said "You don't look like you look on your show." Today our producer and I proposed to the rest of the group that we would grab some makeup wipes and towels and just sit there, live, and take off every trace of make-up so all the world could see our "real" faces.
