If you like Seamus O’Regan’s work on Canada A.M., you better turn on your television right now to catch him while you can. O’Regan announced yesterday that November 24th will be his swan song on the show after nine years as the popular co-host. O’Regan will be joining the CTV National News team with Lisa LaFlamme as a correspondent. The St. John’s-born and Goose Bay-raised O’Regan was the first journalist to be named to Canada’s “Top 40 Under 40” in 2007, and in 1999 was named by Maclean’s magazine as one of the “100 Young Canadians to Watch”. His replacement on Canada A.M. will be revealed on November 24th. “The timing feels right to make this transition, which will allow me to continue doing what I love most — getting the stories that are important to Canadians and sharing them with viewers across the country,” said O’Regan.
