Based out of Business News Network’s Queen Street headquarters in Toronto, Anchor and Reporter Jon Erlichman co-hosts BNN’s weekday morning program BUSINESS DAY. The Toronto-born reporter returned to Toronto after more than a decade living and working in the U.S. in Spring 2016.

Erlichman is a homegrown product of the BNN newsroom, and was part of the team to launch of ROBtv, the precursor to BNN 17 years ago, eventually taking on duties as New York Bureau Chief. He then worked for Bloomberg Television in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, interviewing top CEOs and executives like Disney’s Bob Iger and IAC’s Barry Diller, along with celebrities like Kobe Bryant and Vince Vaughn, all the while breaking news on Apple, Google, Yahoo, and Twitter. He has also written columns and articles for Fortune and The Wrap, and worked as a correspondent for ABC News and Headline News.

A scoop-oriented reporter, accomplished interviewer of top global CEOs and executives, engaging host, and digital innovator, in 2014, Erlichman created Parachute TV, a product that applied scheduled programming to Twitter’s live-streaming service, Periscope. Erlichman has been profiled in the International Business Times, was named by Business Insider as one of “The 100 Tech People You Have To Follow On Twitter,” and tapped by Ad Week as one of the “Livestreaming Stars Every Brand Should Know About.”

Erlichman can be seen filling in Anchor duties on CTV NATIONAL NEWS. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family and reacquainting himself with his hometown of Toronto.
