Canada’s most watched national morning show is coming to Prince Edward Island’s capital city.
Canada AM is live in Charlottetown to throw down an ultra-Canadian challenge Wednesday morning.
From lassoing cattle and portaging, to oyster shucking and snowshoeing, Jeff Hutcheson hosts a hometown breakfast that brings together four teams of four Canadian Tourism delegates representing all the country’s provinces and territories to face off in activities synonymous with Canadiana, and invites viewers to be part of the competition.
"It's always great to bring Canadians a live broadcast from my adopted home of Prince Edward Island, and putting tourism representatives from Canada and abroad through our ‘Challenge’ will make for a fun and entertaining show,” said Hutcheson, who jets back and forth from Canada AM’s Toronto studios to his home in Prince Edward Island on an almost weekly basis.
Hutcheson said viewers tuning in will be treated to an “amazing” message from one of the best-known traveling Canadians who knows what competition is all about. However, the CTV host said viewers will have to wait until Wednesday to find out who the celebrity guest is.
The tourism delegates are part of GoMedia Canada, a five-day conference being hosted in Charlottetown this week that pairs tourism delegates with travel writers from around the world.
