New year, new "eTalk."
CTV has announced that Danielle Graham is the new co-anchor of "eTalk," replacing recently laid-off co-anchor Tanya Kim. Kim was let go from the entertainment show in mid-November of 2014.
Formerly an "eTalk" senior reporter, Graham appeared in her new role alongside anchor Ben Mulroney on January 5. The show is nearing its busiest time of year: awards season.
Graham will be front and centre for all the awards action, starting with coverage of the Golden Globe Awards ceremony alongside Mulroney in Los Angeles.
"Since Danielle joined the 'eTalk' team in 2007, she has become an essential part of the team, and its continued success as the #1 entertainment news series," said Nanci MacLean, Vice-President, Bell Media Production. "Her wit, extensive pop culture knowledge, and rapport with some of the biggest names in entertainment makes for a seamless transition to this new role."
"It’s such an honour to become co-anchor of a show I love so much," said Graham. "A big thank you to everyone behind the scenes at 'eTalk,' and to all our viewers for their support over the years. I’m so excited for what’s to come!"
Ex-co-anchor Kim kept it classy, posting the following tweet:
With close to a decade of national TV experience, Graham's charming personality has put her face-to-face with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, covering high-profile events both here at home, and around the world. Graham also co-hosted "The Amazing Race Canada" after-show, "Inside The Race."
Graham got her start in broadcasting in 2001, working at various broadcasters before making her on-camera debut on YTV’s weekly music countdown show "The Hit List." She officially joined the "eTalk" team in 2007 as a reporter, and was promoted to Senior Reporter in 2013. Born and raised in Guelph, Ontario, Graham graduated from Seneca College with a diploma in Radio and Television Broadcasting.
In addition to Mulroney, Graham joins fellow reporters Lainey [Lui], Traci Melchor, and Devon Soltendieck.
"eTalk" airs weeknights at 7 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO, and 7:30 p.m. ET/PT on CTV Two (visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times).
