Dianne Buckner is featured in the following program(s):
- Dragons' Den (HD) (DV) (Host)
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.
