I can’t wait to get going every morning.”

  1. Caught the show this morning.
    Bit of an odd format. I thought Sonia and Paul would be sharing the desk/studio together, but it was cutting back and forth between the two of them from separate desks/locations….Not sure if this is temporary, or just for the earlier part of the morning show, (he may have tapings for BC1 still going on as well) but it seemed a bit awkward.
    Paul is great, and does a stellar job, and Sonia has really found her stride in the mornings (which can be very tough given the extremely early start to prepare), but it just seemed a bit lacking in the smoothness and cohesiveness of the broadcast.
    Glad to have him on board though. I think if they do work at the same desk, their chemistry will be good.

  2. how about just Paul for the news…he does a fantastic job and second person not necessary. I find young lady doesn’t have a smooth sounding voice….just a bit irritating.

  3. The BC Global morning news, has turned into a parody of a news program.
    Rushed & immature, it’s like watching a high school project.

  4. I can’t believe Corus replaced Steve Darling with Paul Haysen. He is an awful broadcaster. “Gonna'”, “Would’a”… He doesn’t finish his words properly and he sounds like a hick. He has an abrasiveness on top of it that makes him sound like he is trying to be a sportscaster.

    I agree with the commenter above who wrote that the BC Global morning news now sounds immature. The two women giggle together and sound like high school girls most mornings and I end up switching to CNN or another station for local news.

    Mark Madryga is the show’s only saving grace.

  5. have never commented before but need a release. we have been coping since steve darling was fired and have hung in there because we love mark but sonia has been a challenge. the poor girl cant put a sentence together without using the words absolutely or interesting. i get aggitated when she constantly interrupts anyone else trying to speak when they have so little time to get out what they have to say. hurray for paul who brings a high standard to the show and a welcome distraction.

  6. Darn, just looked up what happened to Paul Haysom. Really enjoyed your newscasts on Calgary Global at 11;00 news cast. The dynamics with the group was great! Been missing you with the group. Been such a shake up lately with Jamie gone , and new anchors. Good luck in your new position!
