Ben Mulroney Joins ABC News as Contributor

ABC News President Ben Sherwood made the following announcement this morning:

I'm delighted to share that one of the best known television anchors in Canada, Ben Mulroney, is joining GMA. He will be a contributor and start on air this weekend. Ben will split his time between ABC News and CTV, where he's the anchor of etalk, the #1 entertainment news program in Canada.

You may have seen Ben a few weeks ago co-hosting Live! with Kelly Ripa. He is a terrific broadcaster, quick on his feet, and excels at live television. Ben is a versatile journalist, equally comfortable on the red carpet, covering the Vancouver Winter Games or interviewing Canadian Prime Ministers (5 and counting including his own father, Brian Mulroney). Ben was also a nationally syndicated columnist for the Sun newspaper chain in Canada, where he covered politics and public policy.

Please join me in welcoming Ben to GMA and ABC News.
