CBC spins Toronto city-guide format for afternoon

CBC's putting a former TVOntario host to work in an early afternoon look at living the good life in Toronto.

CBC Television is showcasing the streets of T-O in a new daytime city-guide-style series, Living in Toronto, which premieres Monday, Jan. 15 at 1 pm. Billed as a guide to good living in the city, the show is hosed by Mary Ito, known for her previous gig on TVOntario’s More 2 Life. Actor and filmmaker Mio Adilman will also contribute to the daily show.

Living in Toronto highlights people who are making a difference in the community and offers practical, affordable tips on the best things to see and do in the city, from speed dating Latino-style to exploring the pole-dancing fitness craze. Viewers will also get an inside look at local landmarks, such as the revamped Palais Royale, and learn how to make sushi and deal with Toronto traffic.
