Even if you don’t live in Calgary, you’ve probably heard about all the changes our edition of Breakfast Television has been going through.

It started last year with the layoffs of some of City TV’s favourite personalities like Aisling Slattery and  Sandra Jansen.  Then in the past eight months we’ve seen the departures of the show’s hosts Dave Kelly and Susanne Fox.

But things are slowly starting to turn around.  The show recently brought on Toronto’s Tara Sloan to be the new co-host and so far she has been fitting in nicely.  And now comes word that CityTV is about to announce Tara’s new co-host.  But why wait for the announcement when I can just tell you.

Sure this essentially proves I can’t keep a secret, but I’m pretty excited about the new host and can’t wait.

The new host of Breakfast Television is going to another Torontonian and his name is Zain Meghji!  I don’t know the exact date, but I think he’ll be starting next Monday.

The great thing about Zain is that you’ve probably already seen him on TV.  He’s been a reporter with Etalk for a couple of years now and has interviewed some HUGE stars. Take a look at his pretty fun (and maybe a little self-indulgent) demo reel below:

If you want to follow Zain on Twitter, you totally should. He is already complaining about our weather.  Boy does he got another thing coming to him!

So what do you think? Will the newest host be enough to make you go back to Breakfast Television? Or are you sick of all of the changes?
