Big changes are coming to CTV British Columbia, with the debut of morning and lunch news programs – and new faces behind the anchor desk.

Veteran broadcaster Aamer Haleem returns to morning television in Vancouver as the co-host of CTV Morning Live alongside CTV's Norma Reid.

Haleem hosted VTV Breakfast on what was then known as VTV in 1998, before hosting shows on VH1 in the U.S. and CBC Radio One. The longtime Vancouver Canucks fan calls the new gig "a perfect homecoming."

"I will always consider Vancouver my home," he said. "I helped with the startup of VTV and the breakfast show 14 years ago, so I almost feel like it's my duty to be a part of CTV Morning Live. It's an exciting change."

Haleem's co-host Norma Reid joined CTV B.C. in 2009 after reporting and anchoring the news at CTV Saskatoon for several years.

"I'm absolutely thrilled to be part of this amazing team," Reid said. "I can't wait to share my mornings with Aamer and all of CTV's Vancouver viewers."

CTV Morning Live will feature breaking news, frequent detailed traffic reports, up-to-the-minute weather forecasts and real-time conversations on and social media.

The energetic, lively format helps viewers start the day right with Marke Driesschen delivering the weather and Ann Luu providing traffic updates.

CTV British Columbia News Director Margo Harper said viewers can expect a new exciting wakeup call.

"It takes a special chemistry to get the morning show formula right, and we have assembled a team that has the kind of energy that jumps off the screen, engaging viewers each morning with all the breaking news, weather and traffic they need to start the day," Harper said.

A familiar face will take the lead for the new CTV News at Noon show –Keri Adams, who is moving from her role anchoring CTV News at 11:30.

Adams will also co-host CTV News at Five, joined by former CTV National Vancouver Bureau Chief Rob Brown.

Brown, a Webster-award winning reporter, will still be on reporting duties when breaking news calls.

Longtime news anchor Coleen Christie will take the reins of CTV News at 11:30.

The broadcast features the only live late-night weather forecast in the market, giving viewers the very latest on the weather they'll wake up to.

Christie comes on the air directly after CTV National News with Lisa LaFlamme, the highest-rated evening news show in Canada.

CTV News at Noon debuts on Monday, Oct. 31. CTV Morning Live will premiere two weeks later, on Monday, Nov. 14.

"With new morning and noon newscasts, we have doubled our efforts to better serve British Columbia viewers today and in the future by offering more of the information they need when they need it," said CTV British Columbia Vice-President and General Manager Tom Haberstroh.

"We have taken care to assemble the best teams for our viewers, reinforcing that CTV British Columbia is a one-stop shop from sun-up to sundown for news coverage."

The award-winning CTV News at Six remains the same with Mike Killeen and Tamara Taggart at the helm.

The show won this year's Radio and Television News Directors Association award for the best newscast in B.C. and the Edward R. Murrow award for investigative reporting. Last month, Taggart and Killeen were named the most popular TV news anchors in B.C. by the Georgia Straight readers poll.
