Sid Seixeiro joins Citytv’s Breakfast Television as new co-host

From a media release:

As announced on Sportsnet moments ago, long-time Sportsnet personality Sid Seixeiro is leaving Tim & Sid to join Breakfast Television on Citytv as the morning show’s new co-host.

Beginning March 10, Seixeiro will wake up audiences alongside current co-host and fan favourite Dina Pugliese and the rest of the BT family – Devo Brown, Frank Ferragine (aka Frankie Flowers), Stephanie Henry, Melanie Ng, Nicole Servinis and Tammie Sutherland.

“It’s been a dream to work 20 years in the sports industry, especially alongside Tim Micallef, and express my passion and love for sports on a daily basis. However, I’ve always been curious to explore other areas of the business and this was a unique opportunity that I couldn’t pass up. I’m so excited to begin this next adventure with Dina and the BT family,” said Seixeiro. “While I look forward to my next chapter, this news is truly bittersweet for me. It has been an honour coming to work and talking sports with Tim for all of these years. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner. To the entire show’s crew and our incredible Tim & Sidizens, thank you.”

Seixeiro marks the end of his long-time tenure as one-half of Sportsnet’s edu-taining duo, Tim & Sid, alongside co-host Tim Micallef. Over the next few weeks, fans of both Breakfast Television and Tim & Sid will see Seixeiro across both Rogers Sports & Media shows.

Seixeiro’s last Tim & Sid air date is scheduled for February 26. Micallef will continue to anchor the 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET timeslot on Sportsnet television and radio, delivering the latest headlines, hot takes and exclusive interviews alongside a rotating panel of friends of the show, until further details are announced.

The recipient of a 2020 Canadian Screen Award for “Best Morning Show”, Breakfast Television has been a constant source of warmth and entertainment, delivering the latest news, weather and traffic to help viewers get ready for their day. BT airs live each weekday from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. ET on Citytv and in Ontario, featuring a national hour available in all Citytv markets starting at 9 a.m.

  1. Maybe he can out shine the annoying Dina. A lot of people stopped watching because you got rid of good people and kept her.

  2. Dina is not this fan’s favourite. I can’t stand her! Like Sid tho. He and Tim during the Jays 2015 playoff run was must see tv for me!

  3. Like the others commenting, I too cannot stand the phony and irritating Dina. I have been watching or listening to Tim & Sid since their days at The Score because I was an NBA fan and at that time no one else was talking NBA on TV. A lot of the charm of Tim & Sid is the chemistry between the two along with the freedom that Sportsnet allowed them to do pretty much what they wanted.

    I am not sure how this is going to work out for Sid, I wish him all the best, but I will not be watching BT. I will continue to watch Tim in whatever form his new show will take. I suspect that the entire format of the show may change .
