Dianne Buckner
Host | Dragons' Den
Business Correspondent | CBC News

Dianne Buckner thoroughly enjoys hosting Dragons' Den.

"I don't know what's more fun," she says, "Spending time with the Dragons--they're just as entertaining and impressive off the air--or meeting all the brave and creative entrepreneurs who come to pitch!"

Dianne Buckner brings a natural curiosity along with years of experience to her position with CBC News. 

For 10 years, she hosted the popular current affairs program Venture, eventually becoming the show's executive producer, as well. From there, Buckner went on to co-create Fortune Hunters, a magazine show on CBC Newsworld that focused on entrepreneurship. And since 2006, she has hosted CBC's popular reality show Dragons' Den. 

Prior to her time with CBC, Buckner spent five years at CTV, where she co-hosted the consumer affairs program Live It Up!, and was backup host for Canada AM

Buckner's work has taken her to Australia, the Netherlands, Japan and Iceland; she's interviewed prime ministers, as well as celebrity CEOs, such as Jack Welch and super-investor Warren Buffett. 

Buckner has also worked in print journalism, writing book reviews for The Globe and Mail, and a weekly column for the Metro chain of newspapers.
