Susan Hay is a veteran News Broadcaster and Television Host who has been hosting news and other local community events, weather coverage and news segments for more than 20 years. Susan is the host of a new show that airs twice every week on Monday and on Wednesday evenings on the News Hour. The TV show features inspirational stories about the people in our local communities that are doing the society good.
Susan Hay became a TV personality a while ago where she was a host of a talk show. She joined Global Television in May 1989 and she was the anchor for forecasts and late-night newscasts. From 2001 to 2003, Hay had her own news fragment titled “Susan Hay’s Heart of the City.” Her show aired every week for a half hour as a documentary series on Global and PRIME TV (now TV Tropolis).
In her free time Susan continues to work with many charity organisations, helping the less fortunate, proving to us that she is amazing on the inside as well. She is a spokesperson for the Heart and Stroke Foundation and has devoted much time to Toronto Ronald McDonald House, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada, Variety — The Children's Charity and Reach for the Rainbow that supports children and young adults that are unfortunate to have disabilities. She has also co-hosted one of Canada’s favourite shows called the Toronto Santa Claus Parade, an annual show that is broadcast in four countries. The TV host enjoys a bit of athletics, especially running in her free time and has completed the Barbados Marathon, and the Hawaii Marathon to aid Leukemia.
She visited Africa nine years ago, on a voluntary mission to help children that have lost their parents due to HIV/AIDS. The trip resulted in a one hour show that won an award for Excellence in Television and Commercial Broadcasting. She went back to Africa, Kenya in 2005 and Tanzania in 2006, on a trip to build schools and transform the lives of the less fortunate children.
The TV personality has also won accolades, including the 2007 Spirit of Giving Award from Reach for the Rainbow charity organisation. She also won the Outstanding Woman in her field Award in 2000 which is an award for women outstanding in media and that have been a good contribution to fundraising for worthwhile causes. She won the Consumer Choice Woman of the Year Award that was chosen by the general public. She has also been awarded a Distinguished Diamond Award for assisting in charitable causes.
It is fitting that during March, Women’s History Month, Susan Hay will again be recognized as she receives the Humanitarian Ambassador Award. This award will be presented on March 17, 2012 by the International Women Achievers Awards (IWAA) in Brampton, Ontario Canada. Dare Balogun (TCC)
