Canadian media would not have been what it is today had it not been for its media personalities who have constantly struggled to keep the infotainment quotient of their viewers high. Their passion for work and strong work ethics, have made them a popular name in Canadian media. Be it Mandy Ross the host of Fashion TV who is living her dream of hosting, filming and travelling with her shows and projects or Kevin O’Leary, the co-founder and chairman of O’Leary Funds who is popular for his financial shows, Canadian media has seen a plethora of men and women who have been exemplary in their work. And then there is children’s entertainer Suzanne Pinel who is popular as Marie Soleil, Trish Stratus WWE Wrestler and star of TV show Armed and Famous, Patrick Watson journalist and documentarian, Mark McKinney comedian, Rita MacNeil variety show host, Rod Black sportscaster and others. These are some of the biggest media personalities who command the most respect, evoke the most trust or provide the highest level of entertainment for Canadian viewers. Check out this segment to find out in details about the life and works of famous Canadian media personalities.
