Steve Anthony has announced he is leaving CP24 Breakfast to "do other things" and that his last day will be March 29.
Steve Anthony was just at my home two weeks ago for another great convo and left no hint he was about to leave. He did take great pride in talking about the success of CP24 Breakfast and that it was the most watched morning show in the city, beating his old show Breakfast Television on City. In fact, if you watch the clip below, you'll hear him extrapolate that it's actually the most watched morning show in the country.
I've been visited by Steve twice, and thoroughly enjoyed both conversations. In fact, he's one of my all-time favourite Toronto Mike'd guests.

Here's what Steve has shared on Facebook.
Well? That's almost done. This morning I announced that, after 9 years as a host on CP24 Breakfast, and 25 of almost 40 years waking up at around 3am to be a 'broadcaster', I am stepping away from being on TV and radio. Tanya Humphrey-Anthony and I have been working towards this for a while. We have a bunch of businesses and projects that we have nurturing, and are no ready to devote much more time into.
So that's the story. I can't say you won't SEE me around. But I can't say where or when if you do.
Here's video of Steve's announcement.
2/2 Earlier this morning, @SteveAnthony announced he will be stepping down as co-host of CP24 Breakfast at the end of March after nine years of waking up every morning with Toronto. We’ll all miss you, Steve - best of luck at Cirque Du Soleil! 👊😝😂 pic.twitter.com/dv04BU8B0W— CP24 Breakfast (@CP24Breakfast) March 12, 2018
