Forbes received a degree in History from the University of British Columbia and had planned to go to Law School. Instead, on a whim she enrolled in the Journalism Program at The British Columbia Institute of Technology. Before graduating from the program, Fiona got her first job as a TV Host by accident when she auditioned as a dare and landed her first on camera gig. She is both a proud fashionista and a geek…perhaps best described by Hollywood guru Larry Moss who called her a woman with “chutzpah who reminds me of Lucille Ball”.
Although she is best known for her work on the long-running URBAN RUSH, Fiona has also hosted numerous other shows including DAYTIME on the Rogers Network, AUTOMOTIVE MORNING on Life Network and BREAKFAST TELEVISION on City-TV. She has appeared as a guest on Marilyn Denis, CBC Newsworld and as a contributor on CBC Radio. Fiona also does extensive work as a Master of Ceremonies for corporate events and is passionate about lending her talents to support many wonderful charities including the CKNW Orphan’s Fund, Pink Shirt Day,Variety Club, Timmy’s Telethon and Easter Seals.
