NEWS 1130 Meteorologist Michael Kuss announced as the temporary host on BT when Riaz Meghji takes parental leave

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – A familiar face is returning to television — at least temporarily.

NEWS 1130 Afternoon Meteorologist Michael Kuss has been announced as the fill-in host of Breakfast Television, as Riaz Meghji prepares to go off on parental leave.

Riaz is expected to stick around on the show until his wife actually gives birth to their first child — which could be any day now.

“Do you have the phone standing by?” Michael asked Riaz following the big reveal on BT Friday morning. “I’m so old, we still had pagers. No we didn’t,” he joked.

Riaz is expected to be away for about three weeks when Baby Meghji is born.

Michael has been shadowing on BT for the past week, and will take over when the big day arrives. He will work alongside Mary Cranston, Thor Diakow, and Meteorologist Russ Lacate.
