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, 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 121 Bloor Street East in Downtown Toronto.
The show launched on October 11, 2011 with Liza Fromer whom was previously a co-host of Breakfast Television and Dave Gerry as co-hosts. Kris Reyes from CityNews was hired as 'news anchor' reading the morning's news headline and Daru Dhillon from CBC News as weather anchor. Originally the show was called "The Morning Show with Liza Fromer" but than it was changed and left as the "The Morning Show".
Dave Gerry and Daru Dhillon departed the show in mid-2012, which led Kris Reyes to leave the position of newsreader for co-host alongside with Liza Fromer. In the place of Gerry and Dhillon, former ABC News reporter Antony Robart joined the show as newsreader and former MSNBC weathercaster Rosey Edeh joined as weather anchor along with her current duties as news anchor at Global Toronto and reporter at ET Canada.
On June 5, 2013 Global Toronto's news anchor Leslie Roberts was announced as the co-host of the national edition of the show. Roberts resigned on January 15, 2015, following allegations of conflict of interest for allegedly promoting clients of his public relations firm on the air, including on The Morning Show.
The program includes news, weather and current events, with a four-way discussion among the hosts. Each day they bring guests on throughout the broadcast to be interviewed about their lives, expertise, shows or recordings that the guests may be promoting at the time.
On December 12, 2012, it was announced that The Morning Show would be expanded in early 2013 to include an additional half-hour that would be broadcast nationally.
