Heather Hiscox

Heather Hiscox is in her 13th season as the host of MORNING LIVE on CBC News Network, bringing viewers all the information they need to start their day. It's an exciting, dynamic program and Hiscox is thrilled to be at the centre of it, telling the important stories, talking to the newsmakers, and, when events warrant, taking the show to where the story is happening.

Drawing on her prior extensive experience as a network reporter, Hiscox has taken viewers to the Humboldt bus crash in Saskatchewan in 2018, the Quebec City mosque shooting, the terror attacks in Ottawa and Paris, the RCMP shootings in Moncton, New Brunswick, and to the scene of many other major news events. She has covered the Royal Weddings of both Prince William and Prince Harry, as well as the Diamond Jubilee celebrations for Queen Elizabeth, and has led the CBC News coverage of eight consecutive Olympic Games.

In 2018 she won the Canadian Screen Award for Best National News Anchor, following three previous nominations, and is also a three-time Gemini nominee as Best Host and Best News Anchor.

Before she moved into the morning studio, Hiscox was out in the field. She was based in Toronto for three years as a reporter for CBC News: The National and also travelled abroad, covering international stories for the program. She has also worked extensively out of CBC's bureaus in Washington and London, England.

Hiscox began her broadcasting career in 1982 at a radio station in her hometown of Owen Sound, Ontario. She worked in radio throughout university and for the first few years after graduation, before moving into television in 1991. She has worked as a reporter and anchor in Southwestern Ontario, Toronto, Halifax and Montreal.

Hiscox graduated from the University of Toronto with an Honours BA in French language, literature and translation, and holds a Master's degree in journalism from Western University in London, Ontario, from which she received an honourary Doctor of Laws degree in October 2011.
