Roz Weston (born 1974) is a Canadian entertainment reporter employed by ET Canada and Toronto's Kiss 92.5.[1]

Weston interned with Howard Stern.[2] He was a producer for a Toronto-based radio morning show before joining TV station Toronto 1. While there, he hosted Toronto's first live, late night talk show Last Call. After the station cancelled that show, he joined Toronto 1's entertainment show The A-List.[3] In September 2005, when The A-List was in the middle of making changes, he made the move to Global TV's entertainment show ET Canada. On July 8, 2009, it was announced that Weston will be adding morning show host to his repertoire as the new voice of Toronto's KiSS 92.5 (formerly Jack FM).[4]

On September 17, 2011, Weston had a street named after him in his home town of Acton, Ontario.[citation needed]

The Globe and Mail reported in 2015 that because Weston "used to feel overwhelmed every second of the day", he now practices Transcendental Meditation and says, "A 13-hour workday with five hours’ sleep is not a problem."[5]

In December 2016, Weston competed on a "celebrity" edition of cooking show Chopped Canada,[6] finishing in second place behind Steven Page.
