Intelligent, funny, unpredictable and authentic, The Hour is unlike any other program on television. Host George Stroumboulopoulos connects you to the movers and shakers of the world. With his trademark interview style, George asks the questions that spark dynamic dialogues. In a vibrant fusion of news, entertainment, and in depth conversations, The Hour provides its audience direct access to the influential and fascinating people who are shaping our future.

Equally comfortable interviewing politicians, newsmakers, sports heroes, activists, rock stars and Hollywood A-listers, George has welcomed such notable and varied guests as former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, former Prime Ministers of Canada Jean Chrétien and Brian Mulroney, hockey sensation Sean Avery, environmentalist Dr. David Suzuki, music legend Bono, Noble Peace Prize winner Shirin Ebadi and iconic actors Tom Cruise and Harrison Ford. These remarkable people are just a few of the many to sit in The Hour's signature red leather chairs.
