Global News Morning (previously known as Morning News and the Saturday Morning News or the Sunday Morning News on Saturdays and Sundays respectively and the Early Morning News from 5-6 AM) is the name of local morning newscasts airing on Global Television Network's owned-and-operated stations (O&Os) in British Columbia, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Montreal, and Halifax with each station producing its own edition of the program.

As part of Shaw Communications' benefit package for acquiring Global and other specialty channels from the bankrupt Canwest, Global O&Os in Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Montreal, and the Maritimes would each launch morning shows for their respective markets. As of January 28, 2013, this promise has been fulfilled by Shaw Media.[1]

Starting April 11, 2016, Global began rebranding its local news programs. Morning News, as well as Sunday/Saturday Morning News and Early Morning News are now all known as Global News Morning.

Global Toronto[edit]

Global Toronto airs The Morning Show from 6AM to 9:00AM (addition until 9:30AM for broadcast nationally) ET on weekdays. The show is produced from studios located at the (former) Shaw Media Building at 121 Bloor St. in Toronto.

History[edit]

The station debuted a morning news program on July 14, 2003 under the title Global News Morning; it was broadcast weekdays 6AM to 9AM ET. The program was renamed Morning News in 2006 [12][13][14] in conjunction with Global's network-wide rebranding exercise. This show was broadcast from 81 Barber Greene Road (Global Toronto Office) in Don Mills from 2003 to 2009.

The newscast was cancelled in January 2009 due to low ratings, and was replaced by a simulcast of then-sister station CHCH-TV's more popular Morning Live show, originating in Hamilton, from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. The CHCH simulcast was dropped in August 2009 after Canwest sold the Hamilton station to Channel Zero; since then, Global Toronto had aired second-run lifestyle programming in the morning timeslot.

On June 1, 2011, Shaw Communications announced that it would relaunch a morning newscast on Global Toronto in the fall of 2011 under the title The Morning Show, instead of using the Morning News moniker.[15][16] Kris Reyes, Liza Fromer, Dave Gerry and Daru Dhillon were named as the anchors for the three-hour-long newscast. The show debuted on October 11, 2011.

On August 27, 2012, Dhillon left the show. On the same day, CIII launched The News at Noon [17] Antony Robart took over Dhillon's position. The News at Noon is produced in the same Bloor Street studio as The Morning Show. 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.

In June 2016, long-time host of The Morning Show, Liza Fromer, was let go from the station after her contract was not renewed. Her position would not be filled on the local morning show and Carolyn Mackenzie would take her place on the national edition.[18]

Former personalities on Global News Morning[edit]

Global Montreal[edit]

Global News Morning on Global Montreal airs weekday mornings from 6:00 AM to 9:00 AM ET. The program is broadcast from its studios in the Dominion Square Building in Downtown Montreal, and from various locations in Montreal's West Island area. The show is anchored by Laura Casella with Kim Sullivan as weather specialist and Kelly Greig as live reporter.[19] Global News Morning was anchored by Camille Ross with Jessica Laventure as weather specialist until June 2016. Her replacement is Laura Casella, previously of Breakfast Television Montreal.[20] Global News Morning was launched in 2013 along with Global News Morning on Global Martimes after Shaw Media promised to launch morning shows in these markets along with Global Winnipeg, Global Regina, and Global Saskatoon.

History[edit]

The Morning News began airing on Global Montreal on January 28, 2013, 5 years after the station's original morning show (This Morning Live) was cancelled.

After being rebranded as Global, Global Montreal aired a live two and a half-hour (and subsequently three) hour weekday morning magazine program called This Morning Live. It was aired in place of cartoons that aired on most Global stations weekday mornings because Quebec provincial law requires children's programming to be shown weekdays commercial-free over the air. A side benefit of this was that it added enough Canadian content to the station's schedule that it could air American talk shows in the afternoon.

The cancellation of This Morning Live was announced in late 2007 and the last program was broadcast on February 27, 2008. To partially make up for the loss of locally produced broadcast hours, the station brought back News Final, which was cancelled in June 2006 due to low ratings.

Long-time Global News Morning personalities Camille Ross and Jessica Laventure both left the show in June 2016. On June 22, Camille Ross announced her departure and officially left on June 23 to move to London, Ontario.[21] Jessica Laventure left on June 30 to work in Punta Cana.[22]

Global Halifax[edit]

Global News Morning on Global Halifax airs weekday mornings from 6:00 AM to 9:00 AM AT. It is simulcast on Global New Brunswick. The program is broadcast in high-definition from its new studios on Göttingen Street in Downtown Halifax. It launched on January 28, 2013. Global News Morning in Halifax is hosted by Andrea Dion and Paul Brothers.[23] Global News Morning was launched in 2013 along with Global News Morning on Global Montreal after Shaw Media promised to launch morning shows in these markets along with Global Winnipeg, Global Regina, and Global Saskatoon.
