From a media release:
As announced today on CTVâ€™s YOUR MORNING, Co-Host Ben Mulroney is departing the national morning show to focus on a new career developing scripted and unscripted projects, following a 20-year career with the broadcaster. Mulroneyâ€™s last day on YOUR MORNING will be this Friday, October 1 on CTV.
â€œAfter 20 years, I have made the difficult decision to leave CTV and YOUR MORNING to pursue a career as a producer, developing unique projects for both Canadian and global audiences,â€ said Mulroney. â€œI have had an incredible run at CTV, but itâ€™s time to take the leap and fulfill what has been a life-long dream for me. I look forward to connecting with Canadians in this new way and for the opportunity to develop ideas with Bell Media in the future.â€
â€œBen is regarded as one of Canadaâ€™s premier TV hosts, a broadcaster who helped to put Canada on the map in the world of entertainment news,â€ said Karine Moses, Senior Vice President, Content Development and News, Bell Media. â€œAs Ben transitions from reporting on stories in front of the camera to telling stories from behind it, we look forward to the opportunity to collaborate with Ben again, and we wish him nothing but the best in his new venture.â€
Ben joined CTV as an entertainment reporter for CANADA AM in October 2001, before joining ETALK in its debut season as Co-Host in 2002. Ben was also a member of the broadcast team for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, reporting on entertainment news for CTV, and was the host of CTVâ€™s CANADIAN IDOL for six seasons, which at the time was the most-watched English-language Canadian television show on record. He became Co-Host of YOUR MORNING when it debuted in 2016.
