The "Let's Make a Deal" emcee and "Entertainment Tonight" co-anchor are added to a CBS-heavy talent lineup for the upcoming Canadian media festival.

VANCOUVER – CBS’ Let’s Make a Deal host Wayne Brady and Entertainment Tonight co-anchor Rob Marciano are to emcee the prize-giving at the upcoming 2013 Banff World Media Festival.

Adding to its Hollywood arsenal, Brady will host The Rockie Awards gala in Banff, while Marciano will handle traffic at the Rockies industry awards luncheon on June 10.

Their presence comes as Banff beefs up its American presence this year by giving CBS its inaugural company of distinction award, with top network talent and executives participating in panels and keynotes speeches.

“Wayne Brady and Rob Marciano will bring an exciting edge to the already great line-up we have in store for Banff this year,” said Ferne Cohen, executive director of the Banff World Media Festival, in a statement Monday.
