Taking the GIRL TALK Day 2017 Stage…
*More speakers and performers to be announced!*
Adored for her genuine enthusiasm and positivity, Montréal native Chloe Wilde emerged in 2013 as the winner of the Much VJ Search and has since brought her fresh perspective and outgoing personality to her role as host of E! in Canada. Most recently, Chloe added Reporter for Canada’s #1 Entertainment Show, ETALK, to her ever-growing resume.
Setting the tone for Toronto’s largest street party, Chloe co-hosted THE 2016 IHEARTRADIO MMVA RED CARPET, where she welcomed global superstars such as Nick Jonas, Fifth Harmony, and Gigi Hadid. She has also interviewed some of the biggest names in entertainment, including Julianne Moore, Robert Downey Jr., Kate Winslet, Jake Gyllenhaal, Zac Efron, David Foster, and Tori Kelly.
Growing up, Chloe dreamed of following in her grandparents’ footsteps as entertainment insiders – her grandmother was a pioneer in the Montreal Burlesque scene and her grandfather worked behind-the-scenes for a news station. After completing a degree in psychology from McGill University, Chloe’s strong interest for science lead her to pursue a degree in nursing. While in school, Chloe hosted THE DAILY BRIEF, a current events web series for AskMen.com, which reignited her desire to work in the entertainment industry. With a passion for music festivals and concerts like, Osheaga, Cavendish, and Bonnaroo, as well as, musical influences including Kygo, Halsey, Chet Faker, X Ambassadors, and Flume, Chloe ultimately decided to put her nursing career on hold, relocate to Toronto, and start a new chapter in her life in front of the camera.
Chloe immerses herself in all-things pop culture and is hoping to one day snag a dream interview with the likes of Meryl Streep, Ellen DeGeneres, Tina Fey, Angelina Jolie, and the cast of Friends, if ever they reunite.
