TORONTO -- After retiring from a storied 22-year ice skating career, five-time Olympic medallist Tessa Virtue stepped back in the limelight in a different kind of role on Tuesday.
That of co-host of CTVs Your Morning.
The beloved athlete was featured as a guest host on the Canadian lifestyle show where she read the days headlines, introduced guests, and shot the breeze with her fellow presenters.
Virtue even had the opportunity to test out household robots for everyday chores, sample no-fuss holiday party food, and shared her favourite charities she supports in honour of Giving Tuesday.
While she held her own as a broadcaster, Virtue isnt committing to a life on air just yet. The 30-year-old figure skater still has some other interests shed like to explore first.
Its kind of a neat time, transition-wise, because Im able to yes to some new projects. Ill be diving into school and some new business ventures, she said.
