A TV Hall of Mirrors

Like many Torontonians, I'm aware of CITY television's morning show Breakfast Television. We know it through osmosis if we're not regular watchers. One thing struck me as I watched a "BT" program very recently:

I remember Jennifer Valentyne posting her usual morning "remotes". She'd be there, wherever, live with her microphone, covering an event or place. What I also remember is the news from two years ago where she was being relieved of her mic by Rogers Communications, runner of BT; they wanted to "go in a different direction".


So why is there now a new host doing exactly the same thing Ms Valentyne was known for? (I ask, very well knowing the answer.)
