Home & Family has found their new co-host following the exit of Mark Steines naming Cameron Mathison as his replacement.

The former All My Children star, where he played Ryan Lavery, and more recently Entertainment Tonight correspondent, has previous experience with the Hallmark Channel morning talk show.

According to Deadline who broke the news: “Mathison had been an occasional guest co-host on Home & Family since 2013 and has became a frequent substitute in the two months since Steines’ exit. He will continue to guest host for the rest of the summer, switching to full-time co-hosting duties alongside Debbie Matenopoulos when the new seventh season of Home & Family launches in September.”

Mathison is a great fit for the series which airs Monday through Friday at 10AM, given that he also frequently stars in Hallmark movies.  As for Steines, the longtime host, was abruptly let-go back in May after five and a half years with the series.

Congratulations to him. Glad he’s found a new career outside of the soap opera universe.

I like Cameron Mathison but Hallmark did a complete injustice to Mark. I used to watch “Home & Family” regularly. Now, I tune in once in awhile. Shame on Hallmark.

I love how they constantly talk about being a “family” when people just vanish with no explanation. I enjoyed Mark-he was a great fit. Not a huge fan of Cameron Mathison so doubt I’ll b a regular viewer anymore. I’ll just FF to crafting & gardening. Thanx hallmark for being so underhanded

You know I like him but I am so tired of seeing him on so many shows, I’m over him. Gotta give it to him that he is one of the few men (Canadian actors) that have become Hallmark’s darlings in TV movies now on now one of their “live” shows. Good luck.

Cameron Mathison can be taken two ways. A very smart man, he has an enginneering degree I believe, and extremely good looking who genuinely nice – seems to be trained or learned a lot from Susan Lucci. But his acting leaves a lot to be desired and he has gone a long way based upon his looks. Granted tv is more profitable than engineering and I believe he overcame some physical challenges when you are known m ore for your physicque and looks that says a lot. But perhaps our world is superficial enough for such a star. After all there are a lot of talented and good looking people out there – but getting jobs is another thing.
