It's been awhile since we heard the news that Ann Rohmer will leave CP24 Breakfast in mid June of 2010. The host started in television in 1979 and eventually landed the gig that we all know her for - CITY's BT or Breakfast Television. I found it amusing that she appears on a CP24 advertisement in front of the old CITY TV headquarters, now a CTV studio.
When CTV acquired CHUM in 2007 it had to get rid of it's CITY TV properties, including Breakfast Television. Breakfast Television continued until it was taken over by Rogers which led to the creation of CTV's CP24 Breakfast which was launched in 2009. Ann became the chief anchor of Breakfast Television in 2001 continued as the anchor on the new CP24 Breakfast.
CP24's site says this. "After 31 years in broadcasting and 25 years at 299 Queen Street West, Ann Rohmer has decided to hang-up her microphone mid-June, CP24 announced today. Rohmer is currently host of CP24 Breakfast, Hot Property, and Animal House Calls, in addition to her duties behind the anchor desk. Rohmer will remain the special guest host of Animal House Calls on CP24 and Animal Planet but has taken a position outside of the broadcast industry. Rohmer will break the news to her viewers Thursday morning on CP24 BREAKFAST."
I had run into Ann (picture at top) during the Toronto Olympic Flame celebrations in December of 2009.
