Jody Vance will be the new co-host of Breakfast Television Vancouver with morning newscast anchor Riaz Meghi, Citytv announced Monday. In a release, the broadcaster, owned by Rogers Communications Inc., said Vance will start Oct. 17. "I have worked with Jody over the years and am thrilled to welcome her back to our family,” Scott Moore, president of broadcasting at Rogers Media Television, said in a statement. “She knows the city, she's a journalist, a mom, a sports enthusiast, a cook and a pop culture junkie, and we're confident that Vancouverites will enjoy starting their day with the new Breakfast Television team." Vance was born and raised in Vancouver, B.C. and was the first woman in Canadian television to host her own sports program, Citytv said. She most recently held the position of host on The Jody Vance Show, an afternoon drive program on Shore 104.3 FM.
