It’s the Canadian News Wire’s News Week here in Toronto and around the country as well. This gives journalists and public relations people a chance to tour newsrooms and newspapers and see what goes on behind the scenes.
I just came back from a tour of the CTV studios, which for anyone reading this who lives in the States, is a really big deal. (And no, not just because I was invited to see it.) CTV is a major national broadcaster here in Canada, at par with NBC or one of the big four in the U.S.
It was really interesting to take a look at what goes on and how they put together their programing. And – excuse the name-dropping here – it gave me a chance to meet Canadian broadcasting legend, Lloyd Robertson.
