CIM Awards Gala to be hosted by Ben Mulroney

With more than 16 years of experience in broadcasting, Ben Mulroney is one of Canada’s most respected journalists. As the co-host of both CTV's new program, Your Morning, and Canada’s number one entertainment show, eTalk, he brings the best to what he does as a speaker, emcee, event moderator, and interviewer. Whether on stage or in front of a camera, Mulroney draws on his incredible expertise to create memorable and entertaining experiences for all his audiences.

Throughout his career, Mulroney has covered renowned events such as the Oscars, the Golden Globes, the Emmys, and the Juno Awards. Before joining eTalk, Mulroney was a correspondent for The Chatroom, and the entertainment reporter for Canada AM. He was also the host of Canadian Idol for six seasons, which was--and remains--the most successful English language show in Canadian history. In addition to eTalk, he also hosted eTalk 20, a weekly two-hour radio show that aired on 11 CHUM stations across Canada.

In 2010, Mulroney reported from the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games for CTV, and in 2012 he joined Live! With Kelly host Kelly Ripa to co-host shows from both Banff, Alberta, and from her set in New York City. 2012 is also the year he began as a correspondent for Good Morning America. 

Mulroney has hosted Free The Children’s “We Day” youth-empowerment events, and was a national spokesperson for WaterCan, a charity focused on bringing drinking water to those most in need. He helped to raise funds for the organization by climbing in the highest peak in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro, in 2012.

Mulroney earned a law degree from Laval University and a history degree from Duke University. He is married to lifestyle expert Jessica Mulroney, and is the father of their two twin boys, Brian and John, and daughter Ivy.
