The CT (WTXX-TV) has chosen Moriah Conlan and Michael Breton as its first "MCs on The CT." Conlan and Breton were among the over 300 individuals who entered the contest back in March. The CT held two rounds of online voting for the public to help decide who the first MCs should be in the station's history, receiving over 15,000 votes during the entire competition. The MCs, along with several of the finalists, will make live appearances on The CT while at local events to promote all that Connecticut has to offer.
The CT is infiltrating the local scene, hitting 18-34 year olds where they work and play - in restaurants, clubs, concerts and sporting events with our street teams recording all the action. Best of all, they will be able to see themselves and their friends online and on the air, just like local celebrities.
Moriah Conlan, 25, is originally from West Haven, CT. She graduated from Sacred Heart Academy in Hamden and went on to study fashion at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. This fall, Conlan will pursue her graduate degree at Sacred Heart University. In 2004, she was the St. Patrick's Day Parade Queen in New Haven, helping to organize fundraising events and promote the event. Conlan also began acting/modeling at age 12, appearing in various commercials and print publications.
"I am really excited about this opportunity," said Conlan. "It's an honor to be the first MC on The CT and I am looking forward to being a part of the exciting programming that The CT is doing on a local level."
Michael Breton, 28, is from Springfield, MA. He holds a bachelors degree in Communications from Framingham State University and currently works as a property insurance adjuster. Breton is also a host for Supermodels Unlimited Magazine's television show, and serves as the magazine's director of travel and associate editor. He enjoys the outdoors, specifically jet skiing, camping, fishing and the beach.
"This is an outstanding opportunity for me to do what I enjoy most - meet new people and discover new activities," said Breton. "My personality really fits the MC position and I am looking forward to working with station on these great events."
On air, viewers will see the same great CW programming, the most popular shows in syndication, plus local street team event video from sports to "Seen on the Scene." Online at www.ct.com, users can navigate through celebrity news, relationship advice, fashion, entertainment (did we mention it's local), more street team video and photo galleries and more.
