It’s one of the most popular shows in Canada and an institution at Citytv.
CityLine has been on the air for 24 years and was the original TV show that put the spotlight on design, food, gardening, health, fashion, beauty and other items of interest to domestic goddesses everywhere.
Now there are entire networks devoted to the subject. But a quarter of a century ago, this show was unique. And it remains that way to this day.
Part of that success has always been attributed to the hosts who guided viewers through the ins-and-outs of homemaking and style. In the early years, that was the legendary Dini Petty. And for 19 of those seasons, it was the remarkable Marilyn Denis.
But after she left the show in May, there was a big question mark: who could possibly replace the irreplaceable?
After trying out a series of co-hosts over the summer and early fall, we can finally answer that question – and it’s someone you know very well.
