TORONTO -- One of Canada's best known TV personalities is joining the weekend edition of Good Morning America.
ABC says Ben Mulroney will begin appearing on the New York-based series this Saturday.
That's in addition to his ongoing role as co-anchor of CTV's entertainment show eTalk.
The job follows Mulroney's two recent appearances as co-host of the morning talk show Live! with Kelly Ripa.
Those stints marked Mulroney's first broadcasting gigs in front of a U.S. audience.
In a release, ABC News president Ben Sherwood calls Mulroney "a terrific broadcaster" who is "quick on his feet and excels at live television."
"Ben is a versatile journalist, equally comfortable on the red carpet, covering the Vancouver Winter Games or interviewing Canadian prime ministers (five and counting including his own father, Brian Mulroney)," Sherwood said Wednesday in a release.
