ET Canada veteran Roz Weston to leave entertainment news show after nearly 17 years

TORONTO — After interviewing Hollywood stars in cities around the world, ET Canada veteran Roz Weston says he’s quitting the entertainment news show.

With 17 seasons under his belt, the TV journalist and radio host will leave the show on June 23 with a “special farewell” that looks back on some of his memorable moments.

It’s a significant change for ET Canada where Weston has been a figurehead since the series launched in 2005.

In a statement, Weston said his fond memories include interviewing Shania Twain while on residency in Las Vegas, Brad Pitt in London, and taking a crash course in dirty dancing from Patrick Swayze.

He is leaving the show ahead of the release of his memoir “A Little Bit Broken,” scheduled for September 27, saying the project “needs my full attention.”

A representative for ET Canada said Weston intends to continue co-hosting his morning radio show “The Roz and Mocha Show.”
