Vicki Gabereau tapes final episode of Gemini-winning talk show
Updated at 19:02 on April 6, 2005, EST.

TORONTO (CP) - Eight years. One thousand episodes. More than 3,000 guests. With that, CTV's Gemini-winning Vicki Gabereau taped her final show in Vancouver on Wednesday, to air April 13.

Some of her favourite guests from the past were on hand for the finale, including Jann Arden, Michael Buble, Elvis Costello and Brent Butt.

Diana Krall also appeared via video with a surprise greeting.

"I'm not retiring, just moving on to the next thing," Gabereau said of her 30-year career in the business. "I'll take the summer to think about what I want to do, but moving to Las Vegas and advancing my career as a fan dancer is definitely one of my options."

Gabereau, 58, known as the Queen of Talk, began her daytime show in 1997. She's also been a radio host and is a published author.

CTV will continue to air encore episodes.

So, EC came out with flowers for Vicki and proceeded to 'conduct' the other guests - Jann Arden, Brent Butt, Michael Buble, and Michelle (DK's sister) - in an impromptu rendition of Edith Piaf's Je Ne Regrette Rien. They also aired a taped greeting/ congratulations ditty he and Diana recorded in Seoul. Was nice.
