The Rush is the most entertaining and interactive show on Canadian national television. Hosted by longtime duo, Michael Eckford and Fiona Forbes, The Rush keeps you up to date on the trends, fashion, web, technology, food, celebrity buzz, music, arts, and what's making headlines in Canada. It's also the only talk show in the country that utilizes the power of social media and live streaming technology to give its audience the opportunity to not only be viewers, but guests, producers, and co-hosts as well! "We've always wanted to take our show to the national stage and we can't wait to bring The Rush to all of Canada," says Fiona. "Our goal is not just to deliver really compelling television content, but to also interact with our viewers and guests in ways that help us establish a deeper connection with them. We're going to be taking advantage of all kinds of social media - Facebook, Twitter, Google Hangouts - in ways that have never been done before. We're also using live streaming ...

Homogeneous is the best way to describe Fiona Forbes persona, besides boring and stiff. akin, alike, analogous, cognate, comparable,STUNNED, consistent, identical, similar, uniform, unvarying. this is Fiona at her best. How did this person sustain on TV. how did she manage to be so disliked, BY SO MANY Viewers, when she ATTEMPTED to work,a real TV station ...called breakfast television here in Vancouver British Columbia. how did she manage to get the others that took over for her off the show. then Shaw allows her to come back. who did she make out with. I would not go across the street to watch this Olympic bore . SHE TIRES ME WHEN SHE Attempts TO INTERVIEW . she has no style, she interrupts her co-host all the time, very CRUDE and like a rank amateur she is NON DEFINED.

a professional she is not.. ? I do understand she started at Shaw cable in a tiny little trailer in the back of Shaw' s work yard?As a volunteer me thinks. I think I smell something rotten in regards to her age. I sent a message to her show asking some info. I asked about her age, I got no response, then what appears here at the BEST movie channel review on planet earth. AN unknown person leaves a message telling us she is 33. I AM STARING TO SMELL SOMETHING?. THIS IS what inspired me to write this.THIS IS A fact, the absolute fact. we cannot find nothing about her history, no school NAME OR PLACE, no birth date. when did she go for her post EDUCATION? This tells me she is an incredible narcissist. something else is fishy with this no talent person. her co host is a little guy like myself. Is this an irony that her other co host is also about 3 feet tall. Is this women so self centred that she must be also the physical dominatrix. wow I never had any like for a rank amateur like Fiona. let's get real. I searched till i was blue in the face as to find out her age,AND OR BACKGROUND, TO NO AVAIL. if you are proud of your work, and if your confident in one's self, then you do what real actors and real host of so called talk shows do, revile your info Fiona. I think she had a sweetheart deal with some guy that may have been goofy over her chest, or something, it certainly could not have been how persona. she has something on someone, or why else would Shaw give her the job back. she quit. hey Fiona you're a total bore and by the way, take a random look at real Canadian and American TV personalities, they all give their birth date and background info. I would pay a thousand dollars to find out how or why they would hire her back after she stunk up the airwaves here in her Vancouver real TV show debut . wow where do I APPLY apply
