A fashion aficionado, pop culture enthusiast and captivating interviewer, Liz Trinnear says she’s thrilled to officially join the etalk family as the show's newest reporter.

“I never even thought I’d become a Much VJ let alone be on etalk, so it’s all very surreal,” she says. “I’m a bit blown away, but in the best ways.”

Liz is no stranger to red carpets and celeb interviews, having more than five years experience as a Much VJ. Fans of etalk have gotten to know her as a special correspondent, recently interviewing the likes of Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Liz admits when she interviews A-listers she often considers herself not just a reporter but a fan, a characteristic that resonates with viewers at home.


“I've long been a fan of hers through her many years at Much,” says Morley Nirenberg, executive producer and co-creator of etalk. “Liz's warmth, wit and natural effervescence make her a perfect complement to our on air team. I can't wait to see what she brings in her new role." 

Liz sees her etalk gig as a way to give fans further access to the celebs they love. When it comes to interviewing big stars, she tries to approach them like anyone else. 

“Whenever I sit down with a celebrity I strike up a conversation with them like I would a stranger on the subway,” she says. “Celebrities are humans… if you build a relationship and a trust with them you’re going to have a great interview, no matter what.”

She points to her past interview with Taylor Swift as her favourite celeb one-on-one for that very reason.

“We started our conversation off talking about our favourite drinks at Starbucks, then she complimented me on my nail polish and I started commenting on shoes. It was just two girls ignoring all the people in the room and having a girl talk.”

As for who she’d still love to interview, Liz says Gwen Stefani and Beyonce are her two main bae's and dream interview subjects.

With many more celeb encounters to come, she promises to bring her signature style and grounded personality to her new etalk role. 

“I’ve always been a very authentic person and I hope that translates on air,” she says. “Etalk’s definitely the big leagues, but I’ll still be Liz.”
