Toronto Sun, 17-mar-2011: Wow, what a way to wake up! Television host and former Miss Canada Neelam Verma has joined Sun News to host the network’s early morning news show First Look. Verma, who cut her teeth in journalism with CNN International in India, has gone toe-to-toe in interviews with heads of state, business leaders, celebrities and his holiness the Dalai Lama. Most recently, she hosted entertainment and current events shows for OMNI and Sun TV in Toronto. First Look will air weekdays from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. EST on Sun News Network.

“It’s going to be the perfect show right when you wake up to get all of your news — what’s happening in this country and what’s happening around the world,” Verma said of the program from Toronto on Wednesday. “What we’re trying to do is give Canadians news they can actually use.

“The focus is going to be on international, U.S., and Canadian news stories, and then we’re going to get into different segments, including politics, health, entertainment, lifestyle and some lighter fare as well for the morning.”

Montreal-born and Toronto-raised, Verma has also lived in India and Egypt. She won the Miss Canada pageant in 2002 and finished in the top 10 at the Miss Universe pageant that same year.
