Known for her wit, charm, and engaging personality, Liza Fromer is a widely respected Canadian broadcast journalist. After earning a degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson University, Liza’s first experience in broadcasting was as the driver of the Q107 Community Cruiser. She later launched her television career at YTV as co-host of both Clips and Video & Arcade Top Ten.
From 1995 to 1997, Liza hosted The Weather Network’s Good Morning Toronto and later became the weekend anchor and reporter at A-Channel in Calgary where she anchored the station’s first-ever newscast. Liza spent five years as the popular co-host of Citytv’s Breakfast Television before being offered the chance to host her own series The List for the Slice network. Along with her extensive broadcast career, Liza is also thrilled to be adding Author to her list of credits. With a publishing deal underway with Tundra Books, Liza is set to release a series of children’s books she co-authored.
An avid supporter of charitable causes, Fromer recently travelled to Tanzania, East Africa alongside Mike Holmes in support of the international charity SOS Children’s Villages. Dedicated to helping orphaned and abandoned children, Fromer described her experiences working with the charity as life-changing.

Built on the foundations of old Italian principles, Mallia was founded in the 1960’s in Toronto’s tony fashion district, Spadina Avenue. Focusing on Wool Coats, Mallia’s Italian heritage created a new standard of excellence in the construction of The Coat, one of the most important pieces in a wardrobe.
Mallia has been designing and manufacturing coats for Canada’s largest retailers for over 40 years, including Canada’s largest department stores throughout its history. Its years of success in business are a true testimony to the value in a Mallia coat, and the value in a brand that knows how to make a coat.
Throughout the years, Mallia’s mission is to create a wonderful product. Like a good master tailor, Mallia’s discreet imprint on the fashion world has let the product speak for itself. With its bespoke tailoring services and made-to-measure programs, the Mallia customer has always found what they are looking for, and has kept Mallia as the ‘go-to” place for coats.
Under both the Mallia brand and private label work, the Mallia coat can be found in over 400 stores across North America, including high end department stores and better boutiques throughout Canada.
In 2012, The Heart Truth® marks a decade of commitment to women’s heart health. Starting with February’s American Heart Month and throughout the year, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) reaffirms its commitment to increasing awareness about heart disease among women and helping women take steps to reduce their own personal risk of developing heart disease.
