For over 16 years, Canadians woke up to Dina Pugliese as the co-host of Toronto’s number-one morning show, Breakfast Television. Loved by viewers for her charismatic personality, Dina has a unique ability to bring “sparkle” to everything she does.
Dina began her career as an associate producer for Global Television’s The Bynon Show. She then jumped to primetime to help create, write, and co-anchor the network’s daily entertainment show, The A-List, before joining CHUM’s entertainment-driven Star! Daily. In 2006, Dina received a Gemini nomination as the host of MuchMusic VJ Search.
Her credits, of course, don’t stop there. Dina hosted Canada’s Got Talent for its premiere season in 2012. She also hosted its spin-off called Canadian Family’s Got Talent in April 2020, which was produced virtually by Citytv during the pandemic.
Throughout her prolific career in television, Dina has received several honours including three Canadian Screen Award nominations for Best Host, Talk Show, or Entertainment News and a Media Style Award. She has also been named NOW Magazine’s “Favourite TV Personality”, Toronto Sun’s “Readers’ Choice for Top Personality and Favourite TV Personality”, one of “Canada’s most beautiful people” by Weekly Scoop, and one of the “Top 10 Hottest Women on Television” by HELLO! magazine.
