CHCH brought the beloved show back as part of its 60th Birthday celebrations in 2014. Hosted by Jason Agnew (Splatalot) and Jaclyn Colville (formerly on CHCH Morning Live First Edition), the first season of the new Tiny Talent Time showcased musicians, singers, dancers, variety acts, and everything in between. Through off-the-cuff ‘backstage’ interviews, as well as short documentaries, each episode gave audiences a glimpse into what it takes for each of these pint-sized performers to do what they do.
One of the longest running and most-loved family shows in Canadian history, Tiny Talent Time takes us back to a refreshing era of tap-dancing tots and mini-magicians sharing their talents just for the fun of it. The original series spanned 35 years from 1957 to 1992, and was one of CHCH’s most popular shows. The concept was designed as a younger version of CHCH founder Ken Soble’s Amateur Hour — which originated on local radio station CHML in 1931.
Notable Tiny Talent Time alumni include politician Sheila Copps, famed ballet dancer Frank Augustyn, TV personality Liza Fromer, acclaimed ventriloquist Kirwan Massey and recording artist Deborah Cox.
