Maggie John enters Canada’s living rooms on a daily basis. As co-host of the country’s longest standing daytime talk show, 100 Huntley Street, she speaks words of hope to her audience that stretch from the Pacific to the Atlantic. As the first black host of the show, Maggie knows she is a trailblazer. But being in front of the camera is not what she originally set out to do. Her passion is story telling and so she was trained as a producer. In her current role she is able to pull out the details of guests’ stories from the interviewer’s chair.
In this interview, we hear how Maggie’s taping days consist of hair, makeup and lots of wardrobe changes, but her ordinary is also trenched in the ordinary tasks of family life. From mental setbacks to her mother’s Macaroni Pie recipe we cover it all. A great representation of the sisterhood, this is an episode you won’t want to miss.
From fashion style to interviewing Lecrae, to books that have had a deep impact on her, we are sure Maggie will capture your heart as she did ours. We could have kept the conversation going for hours. Don’t miss this engaging conversation as we put her on the other end of the questions and interview the seasoned interviewer.
