The Morning Show is a Canadian breakfast television show airing on Global. The three hour program was originally shown only on Global Toronto, but was expanded by 30 minutes in early 2013. The expanded portion of The Morning Show is aired nationally on Global. The program is hosted by Liza Fromer,[1] with Kris Reyes as news anchor, Rosey Edeh as weather presenter, Liem Vu as news/social media reporter, and Kimberly Fowler as airborne traffic reporter. It debuted on October 11, 2011, from a ground level storefront studio at the Shaw Media Building on Bloor Street in Downtown Toronto.
