Roz Weston

Roz Weston

Sr. Entertainment Reporter

Roz Weston grew up in the tiny town of Acton, Ontario, where the only way for a young Canadian boy to make a name for himself was to either play hockey or play in a band. Roz favored a guitar over a hockey stick and performed on local stages with no aspirations of actually becoming a rock star. He listened to the radio stations beaming the rock tunes from Toronto, but he was less interested in the music, and more attuned to the wonderful wordplay of the disc jockeys.

A year into his education at Humber College, Roz showed his talent for the written word by writing to the Howard Stern radio show and asking for a job. He must have been persuasive, as he was hired on immediately and moved to the Big Apple to work for the most powerful voice in American radio.

By the time Roz returned to Toronto, he was a bona fide writer and producer for both radio and television, breaking compelling Canadian news stories that even got noticed and published by the prestigious Washington Post and New York Post. He even won two international radio awards from the New York Festival of Radio.

In 2003, Roz made his TV debut as host of the talk-show Last Call, before making the transition to entertainment as a correspondent for Toronto1’s news magazine show, The A-List.

Since the launch of ET Canada in 2005, Roz has covered the biggest entertainment stories on the planet. He’s crawled inside the Great Pyramid in Egypt and stood alone right smack in the middle of Moscow’s Red Square. But what Roz is most grateful for is the incredible opportunity of exploring every nook and cranny of his own country, crisscrossing Canada from coast to coast.

Now his daily job is to inform and entertain a million Canadians a week. First, as the popular radio host of The Roz and Mocha Show on KiSS-FM and later, as Senior Reporter on ET Canada. And then comes the best job of all, as dedicated father to little Roxy and boyfriend to longtime girlfriend, Katherine.

As former host of Canada’s favourite after-school program The Zone on YTV, Carlos is no stranger to the spotlight.

He later went on to become the host of YTV’s Big Fun Movies.

With a love for the performing arts from a young age, Carlos watched a lot of late-night talk shows and Entertainment Tonight with his parents, and always knew that he wanted to be in the entertainment biz, so becoming a part of the ET Canada team in September 2017 was a dream realized.

Throughout his career, Carlos has interviewed the biggest and brightest stars of today, including Chris Pratt, Katy Perry, Ariana Grande, Tina Fey, Robert Downey Jr., Col. Chris Hadfield and Star Wars’ Mark Hamill. He also had a re-occurring role in YTV’s hit series Make it Pop, and in 2014 won a Canadian Screen Award for Best Performance in a Children’s or Youth Program for his work hosting The Next Star Season 6.

With the opportunity to give back to charity Carlos sponsors a hope child through World Vision, and has worked with Corus Feeds Kids, Dreams Take Flight and the Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada.
