Ann Rohmer Quits CP24

Published by Toronto Mike on May 5, 2010 @ 20:18 in Television

TVAnn Rohmer, a face you know best from City TV where she was host of Breakfast Television and an anchor at CP24, is leaving her role as host of CP24 Breakfast in mid June.

After 31 years in broadcasting and 25 years at 299 Queen Street West, Ann Rohmer has decided to hang-up her microphone mid-June, CP24 announced today. Rohmer is currently host of CP24 BREAKFAST, HOT PROPERTY, and ANIMAL HOUSE CALLS, in addition to her duties behind the anchor desk. Rohmer will remain the special guest host of ANIMAL HOUSE CALLS on CP24 and Animal Planet but has taken a position outside of the broadcast industry. Rohmer will break the news to her viewers Thursday morning on CP24 BREAKFAST.

They're spinning this as quite the amicable split, claiming Ann is quitting her job. I ain't buying it. This announcement reeks of spin doctoring and I'd bet my bottom dollar Ann was pushed.

City has been "pushing" many of it's broadcast staff for quite sometime. She had a good run, as good as a stint at the CBC where no one gets the push, only a reassignment.

That's too bad. I'm going to miss her. She was upbeat and I enjoyed her show Animal House Calls.

Is Gord Martineau's hair next to go? I am just wondering, that's all...mmmm...maybe his hair is next on the chopping block.

@Rick In Oakville, Ann wasn't on CITY anymore, she was on CP 24.

It's uncanny how many people don't realize how separate CITY and CP24 are now, or at least confuse the two.

I'd bet at least 20% of ppl have no idea they are not one and the same anymore.

My favourite comment on the link Mike posted above is the idea that Kevin, Dina, Jenn and Frank all "went to" CITY TV.

lol. phucking hilarious.

These same people voted for Dolton and Miller I just know it!!

I'm glad I did a search, I was wondering where they 'went' "

I've never liked her. And havn't watched CP24 since the split. The Morning show is painful to watch at least it was at first. Maybe after she leaves i'll have a look.

Thanks Jason for the updated info, I just noticed Michael Serapia went to CBC news, happen to catch a report from him this morning.

It appears that as of today Ann Rohmer is back on CP24 on a regular basis. Maybe the airline industry did not pan out. Who knows.

I thought Ann was leaving but she's on CP24 more now than before she quit!

Can someone please tell her to get a new hairstyle?? Those wing things hanging on the sides of her face have got togo.

They should say something if she has returned. CP24 made a big thing for about a month that she was leaving, Tell us CP24 if she is back from the plane ride!! Or the plane did not take off.

No one seems to know why Ann is back at CP24. Please take her off & give someone with talent a chance. If you retire then stay retired for Gods sake.

All that fuss before Ann Rohmer left to pursue a career in aviation and now she's back like it never happened. I feel like the viewers are due some kind of explanation.

Also, let's see more Lindsey DeLuce. She's a fox.

Every time I see Ann Rohmer on CP 24 I switch channels. It is terrible to still see her in a prominent role - like hosting the municipal election broadcast. Why??? She answers her own questions and is so patronizing! Lindsay Deluce is infinitely better. Where is she when we need her?

Does anyone have an update as to Ann's reappearance on CP24? Did they make any announcements as to why she is back?

She has a great rack and ass though - nice to have those back on the air.

What happened- wasn't Ann leaving with those fake tears? Now you put her as a prime anchor on CP24? Her pet show is annoying enough where she cuts everyone off and proclaims to be the resident expert. Why even ask questions Ann if you're going to answer. Please retire her! She's annoying and has been around For 2 decades! Get some fresh blood!!

I agree, Retire already..or at least give all those gifts back...what a joke!!!

I don't really have a problem with her being back, but yeah...I thought she was only supposed to be back for Animal Housecalls. She is now on more now than she was before...and yeah, all the promotion about her leaving...it all seems really, really silly now. But please...more of Jamie Gutfreund in his B3 jacket outside in the winter...I could watch him out there all day long. ;)

Strange. I still see here on CP24 every single morning. Was this some kind of publicity stunt?

earlier poster nailed it..she's an ageing hack who's trying desperately (through face lifts and fake teen attitude) to appear as a young newscaster (my favourite is when she introduces Amber Payie with "Hi Amberrrrrrr!" like some airhead high school student)... all part of Moses Znaimer's original plan to fill the airwaves with pretty but vacant chicks...leave for real, Ann!!

Hey! Ann is HOT and has always been. Love you Ann.

Ann Rohmer and Anne Mroczkowski should have a "whose face has been pulled tighter" competition...what a riot seeing these two ageing bimbos trying to stay young...if either of you two hacks had any REAL talent reading the news you wouldnt need the painful lifts and tucks

Why is she still on? It's so hard to watch with her broadcasting!
