Gurdeep

Last week it was Pooja resigning from the CP24 Morning show.  This morning it's Gurdeep.  Are they going to the same place?

Re: Gurdeep

My question isn't so much where he's going as why. Was it his choice - or Pooja's - to leave? That's the headline I'd like this news service to provide.

And where's Mika Midolo?

She's still on the station's official bio page, which means she's still with CP24.

Re: Gurdeep

I’ve been asking the Mika question for a month.  No one seems to know.  Just don’t fire George.  I went to the page RA.  Dixon is not on the page; but apparently he’s taking Gurdeeps place.

Re: Gurdeep

The bio page is never up to date. And you can only get to it if you google it. Why isn't there a link on the website?

Re: Gurdeep

I wasn't aware that the Bio page wasn't up to date. I'm wondering if those mysterious 27 layoffs at Bell earlier this month - details of which have still not leaked out - are part of this. At what point will Bell lay off so many people they won't have enough personnel to run any of their departments?

Don't laugh - that actually happened at Rogers. They went through a few big job cut rounds about a decade ago, and they fired so many staffers at City TV that they were forced to take at least a few of them back - including the now retired Pam Seatle.

Re: Gurdeep

They must be going to the same place.. the back-to-back nature of their departures is too fishy. Given that they were allowed to say goodbye from the studio I wonder if it's a lateral move within Bell? Your Morning? a new CTV daytime show? 
I couldn't see them going to City, but maybe Global's morning show?

Re: Gurdeep

Global seems to be the safe bet. And I assume it's the national show, not the Toronto one. Didn't they just hire a new co-host for Robart for the local show? McArthur still has his radio show to do, McKenzie would be the odd one out.

Global recently hired Candace Daniel from CKVR for the local morning news. The Morning Show seems to be working with Jeff and Caroline so I doubt it’s for that. Maybe Global is adding some exclusive programming to its streaming news services. They are already running a weekend morning show that airs only on those streaming channels.
