With a career than spans over 25 years in Canadian television, Ann Rohmer is a familiar, much-loved face to Citytv viewers. She came onto the TV scene in 1979, as host of the internationally syndicated “Show Biz”. After stints at other national broadcasters, Ann joined Citytv in 1986, as the “CityPulse Weekend” Sports Anchor. Three years later, she jumped at the chance to host Citytv’s new morning show, “BT-BreakfastTelevision”, a position she held for 12 years. In October 2001, Ann moved over to CP24, CHUM’s 24-hour News Channel, as News Anchor.
