A broadcast veteran in television and radio, George Stroumboulopoulos has earned a reputation for being authentic and relatable and is one of the most trusted and respected broadcasters in Canada. George is a passionate advocate of many social and environmental issues and has been an active supporter of numerous causes throughout his career. In March 2011, George was named the first Canadian National Ambassador Against Hunger for the world's biggest humanitarian agency, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP). In 2008, George was the driving force behind One Million Acts of Green, which resulted in the registration of over 1.6 million acts of green on the official website. In January 2010, George helped rally together actors, artists and athletes for Haiti relief efforts as the executive producer and co-host of Canada for Haiti, a live benefit that raised over 27 million dollars for Haitian earthquake victims. On March 6, 2012, the World Economic Forum announced that George had been selected as a Young Global Leader (YGL) for 2012 - George was one of three Canadians to receive the global honor. George has also been involved with numerous charitable initiatives including Nelson Mandela's Children's Fund (Canada), the Canada Africa Partnership on AIDS (CAP AIDS), War Child Canada, and Make Poverty History. George sits on the Board of Directors for The David Suzuki Foundation, as well as Artists for Peace and Justice Canada (APJ). In September 2011, George received the inaugural 'Swarovski Humanitarian Award' at the 5th annual Playback Canadian Film and Television Hall of Fame Gala in Toronto. George is the host and co-executive producer of George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight, Canada's primetime talk show, connecting his audience to the world's most influential and fascinating actors, musicians, and newsmakers through his signature interview style. Award-winning interviews continue to serve as the focal point for the show, with the addition of some unique, new elements, including the fast, furious and funny nightly comedy panel, featuring homegrown and international comedians. George's impact and influence remains, with close to 3 million Canadians watching George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight weekly and reaching 1 in 5 Canadians this season to date. Online, the George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight YouTube Channel has over 60 million views and a strong international following. George began his journalism career in 1993 at a radio station in Kelowna, British Columbia. He then moved to Toronto, Ontario, where he worked in radio for four years, at The Fan 590 and 102.1 The Edge. In 2000, George began his television career as the producer and host of NewMusic and MuchNews on the popular specialty television channel, MuchMusic. He remained at MuchMusic until 2005 when he joined the CBC as host and co-executive producer of The Hour. Starting out on what was then CBC Newsworld, he quickly grew The Hour to a critical and popular success on the main CBC Network. In 2007, George returned to radio to host a syndicated music and talk show, The Strombo Show.
