Interesting news on the broadcast front today as Rogers Media announced the purchase of CITYTV stations in Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver for $375 million.Citytv.png
CITYTV, founded in 1972 by Moses Znaimer has been a true success story in developing unique programming and adding local flavour to the airwaves.
Growing up with awesome independent programming like The New Music, Toronto Rocks, Fashion Television, Speakers Corner, City Lights with Brian Linehan (the best interviewer on TV, ever), The Shulman File, Movie Television, repeats of SCTV and, of course, City News was a staple of life and culture in this city. I hope that retaining the nature of unique and interesting content reflective of the local communities they serve remains part of the plan for Rogers Media.
