Here's Lookin' At You, Kid

Up until a couple of years ago, I was blessed with 20/20 vision. It almost seemed to happen overnight when I noticed I was holding my phone a couple feet away from my face in order to see the screen properly, so I knew it was time to get some…

Biography

“I feel so lucky to do what I do for a living.”

Fiona, who is best known for her many years hosting Vancouver’s hit TV Talk Show THE RUSH, loves her work. “I get to meet so many interesting people every day and hear their stories. I’ve lost count, but I think I’ve interviewed over 25,000 people over the last 20 years!

Since the early days of her career when Regis Philbin told her “You’ve got something kid!”, she knew that making a turn (on a whim) in her career choice felt right. Having earned a Bachelor of Arts at the University of British Columbia, she had planned to go to Law School but instead decided to enroll in the Journalism Program at the British Columbia Institute of Technology. Before graduating from the program,

Fiona got her first job by accident when she auditioned on a dare and landed an on-camera gig as a TV host and hasn’t looked back since.

Fiona has interviewed A-listers to Prime Ministers, rock stars to astrophysicists and is a proud pop culture fanatic, social media addict and a self-professed geek…perhaps best described by Hollywood guru Larry Moss who called her a woman with “chutzpah who reminds me of Lucille Ball”.

In addition to THE RUSH, Fiona has also hosted several other shows including the FIONA FORBES show, 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 & honed her newsroom skills at CKNW News Talk 980 as a regular contributor and host.

In 2015, Fiona and her business partner started their own production company “Ladypants Productions”. They are currently creating and developing documentary/reality based concepts for TV and Web based series for both Canadian and U.S. production houses and broadcasters. LadyPants Productions is an unstoppable, multifaceted, content producing TV powerhouse.

While Fiona loves her work, she also has a passion for supporting many charities with her talents. Among her favorites are CKNW Orphan’s Fund, Pink Shirt Day, Dress For Success, Ronald McDonald House, Variety Club and Easter Seals.
