Co-Host, Breakfast Television
Breakfast Television co-host Riaz Meghji wakes Vancouverites up each and every morning with charm, humour and style!
Growing up in North Delta, Riaz graduated from Simon Fraser University with a degree in Finance. Upon beginning his career path in the financial world, he always felt like something was missing. Entertaining an audience has always been a great passion for Riaz and so he made a decision to take a chance on pursuing a career in the entertainment world – and he flourished! Riaz worked in radio at Z953FM before making the shift into television working for MTV Canada interviewing A-List celebrities like Matthew McConaughey, Pink, and Kevin Smith. He joined CTV News as a weathercaster on their evening news and after moved to Ontario to anchor an entertainment show on SUN TV before joining the Citytv family in 2008 as co-host on Breakfast Television in Vancouver.
Aside from his man dates at the movies with BT Entertainment Reporter Thor Diakow, Riaz loves that his job allows him to contribute to several charities throughout the year, including the Aga Khan Foundation and Free the Children. Outside of work Riaz is writing his own screenplay, he enjoys to read, travel and get pummeled at the gym by his personal trainer.
