After 43 seasons, CTV’s popular morning show “Canada AM” is ending as the network looks to evolve its programming.
CTV says the show, billed as “Canada’s most-watched national morning newsmagazine,” will air its final episode this Friday.
Co-hosts Beverly Thomson and Marci Ien will continue to stay with Bell Media while Jeff Hutcheson will begin his previously announced retirement.
Thomson will move to CTV News Channel while Ien will develop new projects with Bell Media In-House Productions.
“Canada AM” has been airing since 1972, providing news and lifestyle headlines as well as interviews with stars and newsmakers.
CTV says it will announce a new program for the 6 to 9 a.m. timeslot next week.
Friday’s episode will be a tribute to both the program and its hosts.
