  1. You, sir, flatter us. Thanks for the mention, and thanks for the anticipation!

    Also, we will be streaming and uploading wherever we can. We know that’s what the kids like.

  2. Also, let’s hope the purchase of CTV does not go like all the other major media purchases of the last decade. That is: big buy, 6 or so months of business as usual, layoffs to balance the new books and “streamline” within the new corporate structure, less local and regional programming.

    There are some stipulations from the CRTC that BCE will have to invest in new programming and news (specifically in Western Canada and with the A Channels) so let’s hope we see a new slate of original, local programs in the fall.

  3. Thanks for the mention Mack. Vue Weekly has been running online exclusive content for the last couple of years (or more?). Starting with video and photo content early on, and then moving into news, music, film and arts coverage that we placed exclusively online when the timing was wrong for the paper, the content was more web-friendly (lots of links and embedded content) or the paper was simply not able to fit the story that week. BTW, I am really enjoying your “Media Mondays” I hope you keep it up.

  4. Congratulations to Sharon for her mention in the 40 Foodies Under 40. Let’s not forget about the other amazing Edmonton food peeps that also made the list: Daniel Costa of Corso 32, Nate Box of Elm Cafe, and Giselle Corteau & Garner Beggs of the Duchess Bake Shop.
