Fiona Forbes

fiona_forbes.jpg“I feel so lucky to do what I do for a living.” Fiona is best known for her many years on Shaw TV and loves her work: “I’ve lost count, but I think I’ve interviewed over 25,000 people over the last 18 years!”. 

Having received a degree in History at the University of British Columbia, she had planned to go to Law School and instead decided to enroll in the Journalism Program at the British Columbia Institute of Technology. Fiona got her first job by accident when she auditioned on a dare and landed an on camera gig as a TV host.

Fiona has hosted several shows including DAYTIME on Rogers, AUTOMOTIVE MORNING on Life Network and BREAKFAST TELEVISION on City-TV. She has appeared as a guest on MARILYN DENIS, CBC NEWSWORLD, CBC RADIO and on CKNW News Talk 980 as a contributor and fill in host.

While Fiona loves her work, her passion lies with supporting many charities with her talents. Among her favorites are the CKNW Orphan’s Fund, Pink Shirt Day, Ronald McDonald House, Variety Club, Timmy’s Telethon and Easter Seals. Fiona is also proud to be an Ambassador for Habitat For Humanity's Women Build.
