Citytv is ending its long-running morning show, Breakfast Television, and replacing it with a televised version of radio station 92 CITI FM’s morning program.
According to a spokesperson for parent company Rogers Communications, the elimination of Breakfast Television will result in 14 layoffs. Eleven other Citytv employees will be relocated to other positions within the company.
Breakfast TV co-host Courtney Ketchen posted a message on her Twitter account earlier Tuesday afternoon, confirming the end of the show.
"With tremendous heartbreak that I announce (Breakfast TV) is no more, and I am no longer with the show. It was the best 3.5 years of my life," Ketchen said.
Wheeler in the Morning will air weekdays from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Citytv beginning Monday, hosted by Dave Wheeler and featuring Citytv personalities Drew Kozub and Jenna Khan, as well as the morning radio team of Phil Aubrey and Rena Jae.
The new TV show will also be streamed live online. The radio show Wheeler in the Morning with Philly and Rena will continue to be broadcast in its familiar 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. slot on 92 CITI FM.
