Heidi Petracek is the co-host and producer of CTV Morning Live.  She not only informs the morning show audience but she also interacts with them via social media – keeping track of trends and breaking news. 

Viewers never know what to expect from CTV Morning Live’s funnyman Cyril Lunney. Cyril has driven a race car, jumped out of an airplane, played basketball with the Harlem Globetrotters and fed a mountain lion.
