Crowd Funder Show Announces Season 1 Hosts

TORONTO (SEPTEMBER 10, 2013)- Merton Park Film Studios is pleased to announce its hosts for Season 1 of The CrowdFunder Show:

Preet Banerjee 
A former stockbrocker and financial planner on Bay Steet, Banerjee is now the go-to voice for all things personal finance. He pens a column for The Globe and Mail and is the author of two books RRSPs: The Definitive Guide to Registered Retirement Savings Plans and Charitable Giving Strategies for Canadians. His blog, wheredoesallmymoneygo.com, was voted Canada’s best investing blog in 2010. 

As a media commentator, Preet appears regularly on broadcast media including a regular panelist spot on The National with Peter Mansbridge and stints on CTV News, CBC Newsworld, CBC's Marketplace, Global News, and The Morning Show on Global.

Banerjee is the host of “Million Dollar Neighbourhood” on The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). This personal financial lifestyle reality show chronicles a community's struggle to manage their personal finances, tackling everything from budgeting, disaster-proofing, the psychology of money, and more. Each week 100 families are challenged to increase their collective net worth by $100,000. If they do, one family will be rewarded with $10,000. Over the course of 10 weeks, if the community increases their net worth by $1 million, one family will be rewarded with $100,000.

Not one to pass up a great investment opportunity, Banerjee recently made a private investment in Tunezy, a social record label in which independent musicians can pave their own way without the barriers created by traditional record labels.  
Stacey Englehart
A veteran media personality, Englehart has over a decade of experience in various dimensions of broadcast media.

A radio heavyweight, Englehart has filled many roles from behind the Mic as an on-air host to behind the desk as a Program and News Director.

If you’ve turned on your TV over the past 10 years, you’ve definitely seen Englehart shine with hosting duties covering everything from the Olympics to anchoring on networks such as CTV, CBC, Global, E! and Fox.  
The go to face of Brandpower Canada and US, Englehart is not short on business acumen, flawlessly running her own production company overseeing all aspects including scriptwriting.

“Besides being outstanding broadcasting professionals, Stacey and Preet bring both a wealth of knowledge and a degree of credibility to the table from their experience as business professionals,” said Jordan Whelan, Executive Producer.

The show will launch in Southern Ontario, Toronto and Western New York on the local Fox affiliate to an estimated 3 million households starting September 22nd, with the rest of Canada and the United States rolling out right after.
