Dianne Buckner is thrilled that Dragons' Den has become so incredibly popular with television viewers.

"I've hosted other big ratings winners in my career," says Dianne. "Venture had a big and loyal audience. And way back when I was at CTV, Live It Up! was also extremely popular. But people seem to love Dragons' Den with a passion I’ve never experienced before."

Dianne started her career as a network host on the popular consumer affairs show Live It Up! She also reported for CTV National News, and was back-up host for Canada AM. She moved to CBC Television in 1991, as a reporter with the award-winning business affairs show Venture, eventually working her way up to host and executive producer of the program.

When Venture retired from the airwaves in 2007, Dianne co-created Fortune Hunters for CBC Newsworld, a program focused on entrepreneurship.

In addition to Dragons' Den, Dianne reports on breaking news stories in the world of business for CBC's local 6 o'clock newscasts across the country, and writes a column for cbcnews.ca about small business. She also argues regularly with Kevin O'Leary as a back-up host on his daily business show "The Lang and O'Leary Exchange", which airs on CBC News Network.
