Following a 34-year career of daytime television, the veteran broadcaster is set to continue co-hosting on Marilyn Denis and Jamar on weekday mornings on CHUM 104.5, and will remain a host on Marilyn Denis Does a Podcast.
"I have a very special announcement to make, and it's going to be tough for me to make this," Denis said in between tears.
Oh my tears. Marilyn just announced that her last show will be June 9, 2023. I love this gal. Will miss the Marilyn Denis Show so much. I watch everyday! Marilyn is healthy, just wants more family time. God Bless you Marilyn Denis.— Leann Postma (@LeannPostma) April 13, 2023
"After 13 wonderful seasons, I've decided that this is the last season of this show. I want to be clear, I'm not retiring, and I'm very, very healthy," she said as audible "awws" could be heard from the live audience.
The four-time Canadian Screen Award-winning daytime series invites a mix of experts, celebrity guests, and viewers to discuss topics in entertainment, lifestyle, fashion, food, and fitness.
I am crying...😢🥲 It has been a wonderful 13 years watching you on your tv show...Have a happy "retirement" from tv and continued success on your radio show. Wish I could have seen you when you came to Montreal this year.— Loreta (@Loretawith1T) April 13, 2023
Denis' radio career began back in 1976, and since then, she has been listed as of one Canada's Most Power Women: Top 100 by WXN, and is the first female recipient of the Allan Waters Broadcast Lifetime Achievement Award.

"Hosting a national television show has been a career highlight, and such a rewarding and fulfilling chapter in my life, but after more than three decades of balancing my radio show with a daytime series, I'm ready to step away and refocus on my family and other projects," Denis said.
You will be SO MISSED Marilyn but understand your decision. The next new exciting phase of your life begins June 10th! ALL THE VERY BEST Marilyn❣️🥰— Anita Johanne Hayes (@anitajhayes) April 13, 2023
"I want to thank the entire team at The Marilyn Denis Show, who are and always will be family, the incredible experts and guests who have joined me over the years, and most importantly – every studio audience member and the viewers at home for welcoming me into your lives. I'll be forever grateful for the wonderful years we've spent together."
