Michael Hainsworth is host of The Business News and The Close and is BNN’s longest-serving on-air personality. A talented broadcaster and journalist, Hainsworth is often called on to anchor special coverage on BNN, such as the Federal Budget or fast moving news stories like the 2014 Parliament Hill shootings.
In addition to hosting some of BNN's top rated programs, viewers may also recognize Hainsworth for his work distilling the day's financial news on local CTV newscasts across the country and for CTV News Channel.
Hainsworth made the transition into television after 11 years in radio; six of those were spent as news anchor and business reporter for top-rated radio station, 680 News in Toronto. When not reporting the day's financial news, Hainsworth can be found devouring the latest technology stories; he is a self-confessed "computer geek."
