Vicki Gabereau (born May 31, 1946) is a Canadian radio and television personality. Most recently she hosted an eponymously titled afternoon talk show on CTV Television Network, produced in Vancouver, British Columbia, which wrapped up production on April 8, 2005 after eight seasons. She makes regular fundraising appearances on the Knowledge Network.
Gabereau moved to Toronto at age 18 for university. While there she married Michel Gabereau and worked a variety of jobs, including as a professional clown. In that capacity, she ran for Mayor of Toronto in the 1974 municipal election under the pseudonym "Rosy Sunshine". She then worked in radio, hosting her first talk show for a station in Brampton, Ontario. She later joined the CBC as an archivist, and became host of that network's Variety Tonight in 1981.
In 1985, she became host of Gabereau, a two-hour daily interview show on CBC Radio. She was one of the CBC's most popular and beloved hosts until her departure in 1997, when she moved to CTV. Her radio program was replaced by Richardson's Roundup, hosted by Bill Richardson. She published an autobiography, This Won't Hurt a Bit, and a cookbook collecting some of her favourite recipes sent in by her CBC radio listeners.
