Our Hosts Rick Campanelli, Liza Former & Chef Jo Lusted
As one of Canada’s most recognized television personalities, Rick “The Temp” Campanelli connects with audiences across the country. From music lovers and sports fans to single guys and parents, Rick’s content and delivery is relatable to everyone. He’s known as “the nicest guy” on television and he lives up to that reputation both on and off screen…unless you ask his wife Angie. Kidding! Rick hosts events across the country and dedicates a large portion of his time to charity work with family-related organizations (like World Vision Canada, Sick Kids Hospital, RMHC Toronto/Hamilton and so on). He’s also a rare gem that truly never ages (neither physically nor mentally). He’s one of the first to be out on the street playing with the kids and never passes up a moment to explore somewhere new with his family.
