The former and future hosts of Urban Rush, Michael Eckford and Fiona Forbes talked with Joseph Planta about their careers in television, as well as previewed their return to Shaw Television on Monday, 20 September 2004.


Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

Joining me now on the line are Michael Eckford and Fiona Forbes.

Thanks to their youthful animation and candid on-air repartee, so wrote the National Post, they came to prominence in this market when from 1997 to 2002 they co-hosted Daytime on Rogers, which became Urban Rush on Shaw Cable 4. From 2002 until they were unceremoniously dumped this spring, they co-hosted CityTV’s Breakfast Television. They return to Shaw and Urban Rush this Monday, the 20th of September, bringing their unique and one-of-a-kind chemistry to television screens in the Lower Mainland at least 37-times-a-day.

Welcome to thecommentary.ca, the former and future hosts of Urban Rush on Shaw Television, Michael Eckford and Fiona Forbes; Good afternoon Ms. Forbes and Mr. Eckford.


This segment was produced by Joseph Planta, with Richie Leung.
