Why the hell is Michelle Boden (former A-Channel News anchor, now host of Inside Story on 630 CHED) pitching Vancouver Island tourism on our TV stations?

My first thought is major annoyance towards a local media celeb promoting another part of Canada.

My second thought is it's an idea Edmonton should aggressively pursue in other cities.

Good question. That's the first thing that went thru my mind. She probably passed the audition.

Are you sure it's her?. I was never sure because she looks a lot like Michelle Boden but then I thought since it's a Vancouver Island ad it must be some other girl who just looks like her. But she is cute, whoever she is.

Why wouldn't she? She probably got laid off, and is now a freelancer. Good for her, Vancouver Island is promoting itself here in Alberta. Shows they know Alberta has money to spend there.

You guys are so sensitive.

Yes, I suspect Michelle is doing a freelance gig. It's not easy making ends meet in private radio, unless you are the star of a morning show, or sports broadcast legend. I've met Michelle and she's a terrific person. Don't be too hard on her for taking a paying gig. I'm sure she'd be happier still if she were doing it for Edmonton.

No kidding. It is a spot. Simple as that. Get over it.

She still has her own show on CHED (as mentioned in the first post) so she's not laid off, Brent.

And imagine the outcry on this board and everywhere else if Carrie Doll was doing TV ads promoting Calgary tourism.
