This Friday, June 9, after 13 seasons, ever-popular radio and TV host Marilyn Denis concludes her long-running CTV daytime series The Marilyn Denis Show. Prior to that, she enjoyed a 20-year run in daytime TV on CityLine -- an incredible 33-year reign over two networks.
In fact, as she discusses on this episode of brioux.tv: the podcast, Denis was so coveted by former Bell/CTV boss Ivan Fecan that he insisted she be part of the deal when a tug of war developed over her services.
The good news for fans of the broadcaster is that she is keeping her radio job. Denis can still be heard each weekday morning as co-host of Marilyn Denis and Jamar on CHUM 104.5. This fall, she also plans to resume her most recent project: Marilyn Denis Has a Podcast.
I'm just grateful she was a guest on this podcast, where she talks about some of the celebrity guests she has interviewed, including Elton John, Sally Field, Lionel Richie and Jane Fonda. Look for visits from more celebs in her final week of CTV shows.
Whoever she is interviewing, Denis always strives to, as she says, "put myself in the place of the viewer and ask what they would want to know."
She even sings! Listen towards the end as she treats listeners to a few bars from her all-time favourite TV theme song.
