Ann Rohmer

Lead Anchor

Ann Rohmer is a steadfast member of the CP24 family, where she brings a wealth of experience to the anchor desk.

Over her 36-year career in television, Rohmer has taken Torontonians through many of the city’s biggest stories in her role as news anchor.

Rohmer burst onto the TV scene in 1979, as host of the internationally-syndicated program Show Biz. Moving over to Global Television, Rohmer hosted an award-winning magazine-style show called “That's Life.”

Her next move was to CBC Sports, where she was the network's first female sports anchor. That was followed by three years at CTV as the features reporter on Canada AM.

In 1986, Rohmer found her home at Citytv as a weekend sports anchor. Three years later, she began waking up at 3 a.m. to host “Breakfast Television” – a routine she perfected over a spectacular 12-year run.

Believing that “a change is as good as a rest,” Rohmer became the chief anchor for CP24 in October 2001, leading the daytime coverage for Toronto’s only 24-hour news channel. In February 2002, she jumped at the chance to host CP24's new real estate show, Hot Property.

In 2004, her passion for animals turned to professional pleasure when Rohmer was asked to host Animal House Calls, also seen ion Animal Planet.

Rohmer has received numerous industry and community accolades, including her selection as Toronto's Favourite Television Personalities in 1999 and 1994, and as one of the city's"10 Sexiest Women" (1994) by readers of the Toronto Sun. She was honoured in 1998 as Variety Children's Charity's "Outstanding Community Volunteer." In 2012 was the recipient of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal for her tireless work helping animals, and for her support of the military and the monarchy.

Rohmer’s passion for live news is a perfect fit with CP24, which she calls “the eyes and ears of Toronto.” CP24 focuses on breaking news, weather, traffic, plus transit updates from across the city – presented in the fresh and dynamic style of live television through CP24’s revolutionary enriched screen.
