Coming up this week on this repeat episode of Finding Your Bliss, Judy Librach is joined by the Host of morning television’s “Live Eye” segment for 23 years, the smiley and effervescent Jennifer Valentyne. Jennifer was also the host of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette Canada’s first live after show on the W Network. With her infectious enthusiasm lighting up everything she does, Jennifer is also a very popular speaker, moderator, and inspiration to everyone on how to reach their full potential.
Jennifer’s journey to becoming one of the most recognizable faces on television started while she was attending Centennial College for Radio and Television Broadcasting, working as the Key590 radio station Cash Car Girl while studying. She then took an internship at MuchMusic, and after graduation, obtained a full-time position as a graphics operator in hopes of becoming a VJ. Moses Znaimer, founder of CityTV, and the owner of Zoomer Radio, had other plans in mind, and brought her to morning television in the memorable role of the singing weather girl. And as they say, the rest is history.
Over the course of her career, Jennifer has interviewed celebrities such as Sir Richard Branson, Billy Crystal, Rachel McAdams, Channing Tatum, and Harrison Ford, but her passion has always been people in the community — she has the exceptional gift of unearthing their fascinating stories and sharing them in a meaningful way.
An actor, Jennifer was a founding member of the comedy troupe “On the Off Ramp” and studied improv at The Second City, as well as working with one of the originals, Joe Flaherty, on character building. She has been writing songs and singing jazz since she was a teenager and went on tour after releasing two CDs. She was also previously a co-host of Q107 with John Derringer.
Jennifer is deeply fulfilled by giving back to the community with volunteer initiatives and is actively involved with Camp Oochigeas, (pronounced Camp Ooch), The Children’s Breakfast Club, Dreams Take Flight, Habitat for Humanity, Women Build, Pride Build, and World Vision.
Also on the program, we have Jennifer’s daughter Georgia Valentyne as our Featured Artist.
Georgia Valentyne is a 20 year-old songwriter from Toronto, Ontario. She has been recently working on her upcoming album 11:11. She is a pop, jazz, musical theatre artist. Her past year has been spent writing and studying at Randolph Centre for the Arts. Georgia will be singing her first release from her upcoming album, which was produced by Jake Donaldson.
