TV and Radio Host

Anne-Marie Withenshaw has been a bilingual Canadian radio and TV mainstay since 1998. On the radio, the 12-time Gemini and two-time Canadian Screen Award nominee hosts Aprèm, WKND 99.5 FM’s daily afternoon drive program. On the small screen, she heads ICI ARTV’s flagship show C’est juste de la TV and Atelier culinaire on TVA.

After a meteoric rise to a VJ spot on MusiquePlus early in her career, Anne-Marie went on to travel the globe with Flash — famous yellow mic in hand — where she covered international film fests and galas. She kicked off the second decade of her TV career hosting Nos Canadiens (V Télé), which she also helmed on English-language networks TSN and NHL Network USA. Withenshaw has chowed down at some 300 restaurants over six seasons of Guide Resto Voir (Évasion), hosted Pressure Cooker on W Network and FYI USA, and co-hosted three seasons of TVA’s cooking competition show À Couteaux tirés alongside chef Chuck Hughes. She’s also been the bilingual face of CBC/Radio-Canada’s Canada Day in Québec City — four times over, actually.

Behind the camera, the founder of Killer Queen Productions co-produces chef Chuck Hughes’ show Chuck's Day Off, which airs in nearly 50 countries around the world. The Canadian Association of Broadcasters honoured Anne-Marie with the Bronze Ribbon Award for Excellence in Cable Broadcasting.
