Host Info: Angie Poirier
Angie is a hometown girl born and raised in the nation's capital. Angie got her start in television right after graduating from Algonquin Collegeâ€™s Broadcasting program. She was first hired on as Creative Services Producer for The New RO in 1999, working out of the Pembroke Station. A short time later she secured a position with the Creative Services team in Ottawa and made her move back to her hometown.

Just two years later, she moved from the evening news to join the morning show as the live-on-location co-host.

What I love about my job:
â€śIs this work that Iâ€™m doing here? It really amazes me that I get to be paid for what I love to do. Iâ€™m living the dream! This job affords me the opportunity to explore my hometown and check out everything that is new, interesting, newsworthy, and important to our viewers. I get to take the viewers right into the experience by trying new things hands-on. We have faithful viewers and entire families who open up their homes to us every morning and itâ€™s nice to know that daily we can keep you all entertained, regardless of age. You tell us your kids dance with us, you try our recipes, we keep you informed and we keep you laughing. Thatâ€™s a great gift wrapped up in a big red bow.
