Seamus O’Regan is the former co-host of CTV’s Canada AM, Canada’s #1 national morning show.
Born in St. John’s, Newfoundland, and raised in Goose Bay, Labrador, Seamus studied politics at St. Francis Xavier University and University College, Dublin; marketing strategies at INSEAD, the international business school near Paris; and received his Master’s of Philosophy degree from the University of Cambridge.

He is one of the few journalists to have interviewed four former Prime Ministers — Brian Mulroney, Kim Campbell, John Turner and Joe Clark — together.
Canada AM took Seamus across Canada and around the world, from NORAD headquarters inside Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado to Kandahar Air Field, Afghanistan. A good sport, he trained (briefly) with the Cirque de Soleil and piloted (very briefly!) a CF-18 jet fighter.
Seamus led CTV’s extensive coverage of Live Earth and the Concert for Diana. He hosted The Giller Prize, Canadian fiction’s most coveted literary award, three times, as well as the television specialT he Next Great Prime Minister.
Seamus became the first journalist to be named to Canada’s “Top 40 Under 40,” and he was named to Maclean’s magazine’s 100 “Young Canadians to Watch” in the new century. Seamus serves on the boards of the World Wildlife-Canada; The Rooms – which houses the Provincial Art Gallery, Museum, and Archives of Newfoundland and Labrador; and The Company Theatre group in Toronto.
