I am a little surprised Liza was let go. 16x9 I never watched, but Liza was hired at a time when a lot of the staff behind the scenes @ Global TV were former Breakfast Television employees.
Liza was supposed to be the ultimate run for the money competition and direct threat to City TV's Breakfast Television.

Can not stand her and Frank and Kevin. They are nothing more than corporate brainwashed mouthpieces for the sponsored corporation du jour. It is rather embarrassingly cheesy and hokey.

Here, here. Did you see Ditzy Dina at an awards show lost year? I think it was last year. What an idiot. Is she really one to represent Canadian TV? Changed channels as ASAP.

It's been called that for a while now by many people I know, lol
Remember when Rogers thought they could be so smart, cut corners and get rid of week-end news?
CRTC (Canadian radio and television and telecommunications commission) has ruled that it is now illegal not to offer news and information 7 days a week.
Rogers Global and CTV can not cut corners now.
I like that. Week-end news must now air, and can not be cancelled.
(even though we can get our news anywhere these days, the TV has always been my personal favourite source, so I am very happy about this decision)

I sense genuine hostility between her and Kevin at times. There have been a few instances I've seen where she seems close to yelling at him and he's had to pull this awkward deferential stance to maintain the 'shiny happy morning time' theme of the show.

I remember Liza and Kevin having pretty good chemistry. I can't stand BT anymore. I'm sure they are trying to find a way to force Kevin out and replace him with that weird robot looking guy who does the entertainment.

Many of the staff behind the scenes of Global morning are former BT staff. Not everyone knows this fact. Liza was supposed to help make Rogers/BT feel awful about letting her go.
Now Global lets her go? Oh well...

Agreed. I was a long time viewer of BT even throughout school, but about four years ago I just couldn't take it anymore. I've since switched to Global and while there has been considerable turnover there, I enjoy the format and personalities better (except for Alan Carter whom I can't stand). I was never a fan of Liza so I don't mind that she's out, and I was also never a fan of Jennifer Peck/Valentyne so again, not upset she's out either.
