Andrea Slobodian Named CTV Winnipeg Late Night Anchor

CTV Winnipeg has filled the vacant late night anchor position with a familiar face.

Andrea Slobodian will be returning to Winnipeg in mid-October to assume the role left open by Susan Tymofichuk, who didn’t return to the air post-maternity leave.

The Winnipeg native has spent the past three years in Calgary, working at Shaw TV, CBC and most recently the Sun News Network.

Before leaving for Alberta, Slobodian last worked at Global Winnipeg as a reporter/anchor.

Andrea Slobodian to Co-Host Sun TV Morning Show

Andrea Slobodian, former Winnipegger-turned-Calgarian, will co-host a new morning show on the Sun News Network.

Slobodian left Global Winnipeg in September 2009 to become Shaw TV Calgary’s first ever weather anchor. She then left to pursue a brief stint at CBC Calgary.

On Thursday, Quebecor Media announced she’ll make up one-third of a panel on “The Roundtable.”

“It will be a feisty, personality-driven discussion on national issues… including the West,” the network said in a release.

Slobodian will co-host from Calgary with Alex Pierson and Pat Bolland chiming in from Toronto.

“(This) lets me do more anchoring, which I’ve always loved,” Slobodian said when reached by e-mail.

The show will air weekdays from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. CT.

Andrea’s last day at the CBC is today.

Fun fact: Former Globalite Nicole Dubé will also be part of the new network when it launches April 18.

Fear Not, Andrea Slobodian Fans — She’s Back!

Andrea SlobodianFormer Global TV weather personality Andrea Slobodian is back on Winnipeg airwaves … sort of.

Andrea began her new gig at Shaw TV Calgary earlier this month as their first ever weather anchor.

Now she’ll be doing local weather hits for Shaw TV Winnipeg from out west. Andrea says she did a few last Thursday and Friday and should be in the full swing of things by this week.

Look for her on channel 9 late afternoon, evenings and overnight.

The only downside to her new job? Facebook, Twitter and Gmail are blocked at work. We feel her pain.

Andrea Slobodian - Shaw TV

Global TV weather gal Andrea Slobodian is on the move. After two years at Global, she has accepted a job with Shaw TV Calgary (that’s the building above) and will be their first ever weather anchor. Gone will be the days when a standard temperature reading appears on the bottom of the screen for Calgarians. The deal was just finalized earlier today.

As for the move itself, Andrea tells ChrisD.ca it will be hard to leave Winnipeg, as most of her family and friends are here. But according to Shaw’s website, working there is like being with family, so she’ll probably be just fine.

Her last day on the air locally will be Friday, September 25. As for taking her famous “…And that’s your forecast” line with her, Andrea notes it’s a possibility.

There is no official replacement to take over the Global weather desk yet.

Good luck, Andrea!
