Apparently, when Gord Martineau left CityNews after 39 years in 2016, it wasn't his choice to leave. Learned something new today.

Timestamp is 17:08 for those who are wondering.

 

 

By the way, Global Toronto is making some changes to its morning lineup.

 

 

 

Jennifer Valentyne, the former Citytv host who recently joined sister radio station Q107, is now joining Antony Robart from News Final in a reboot of Global Toronto's local morning news program newly named Global News Morning, bringing the Toronto affiliate in line with their regional colleagues' naming schemes (and reusing a broadcast title they dropped 15 years ago).

 

Jeff McArthur and Carolyn MacKenzie, the now-former hosts of the local Toronto program, will continue to host the nationally televised "The Morning Show", which remains unaffected.

It was stupid for Citytv, IMO, to dump Ms. Valentyne, The Prize Girl Queen. Lmao. But glad she's back on Toronto Television.

Eurosport unveiled its logo for its 2020 Olympics coverage

 

Let's just say they went in a very different direction over NBC.

 

I actually love Eurosport's ambitious design strategies based around unique cultural niches, like manga in 2020 and K-pop in 2018. This is going to be so good - cannot wait!!

Legendary Argentine newscaster Luis Otero retired today from Canal 13 after 35 years with the station. He will run for mayor of Avellaneda, his hometown, located 7km south of Buenos Aires. Here's the full farewell video.

CBC seems to be undergoing a rebrand with a new wordmark (is that Gotham? The sports department seemed to have been favouring Gotham since the 2015 Pan-Am Games). CBC Sports had updated its logo, I saw a promo for CBC News with a similar style logo, and some of their regional social media outlets have been using it too

They had phased in new local graphics based on the CBC News Network refresh. But could something based on The National's current design work well locally?

 

Oddly enough this new Sports logo reminds me a lot of their red/blue logo from the 90's.

Although outright pulling channels in a carriage dispute is actually illegal in Canada, Quebecor is getting into U.S. style mudslinging over its disputes with Bell over carriage of its TVA Sports channel (which competes with Bell's RDS, the French TSN, but is on a worse tier than RDS on Bell satellite)

Screenshot_20190304-001019.thumb.jpg.a6c77dc95244190fc9e4f36c5358e902.jpgCTV are re-doing their local news promos to fall in line with their recent network refresh. 

 

Is a news rebrand incoming? I sincerely hope not, their current graphics are too good.

 

 

 

No, the current graphics package remains. Only the news logos were updated/replaced with the one above.

I've documented the changes on the TVNT Discord server - it appears they are just updating the logos for the most part. Some graphical elements, such as CFTO's Community Calendar, now CTV Our Community, and the aforementioned promo graphics (chryons and all), were completely redone with new graphics. Their news app was also overhauled too.

"The roll out is...quite slow. The new CBC standardized logos were quietly introduced in the middle of the Fall 2017 season... and it was only used for internal documents concerning the CBC TV network. Fast forward a year later, the TV network began using it in promos, and the Sports division formally opted in afterwards.
Either way, a new look for the CBC is looong over due. The corp was using the same logo structure for almost two decades now."

Looking at the visual motifs, it appears The National's chyrons are a part of the current CBCNN/local refreshed graphics, so there will not be a refresh anytime soon.

It looks like, despite it actually being illegal to do so in Canada if you're at a "Standstill", TVA Sports did get pulled from Bell. Steve Faguy's blog (he's a media writer for the Montreal Gazette) has a massive breakdown of the situation.

 

Bell has been retaliating, even though one of them surely benefits its main English rival:

  • The affected subscribers are getting Sportsnet's three main networks (regionals, One, and 360) for free for the duration of the dispute (which have the English coverage)
  • TSN has suddenly added a few more Montreal Impact matches to its MLS schedule (their French "regional" package is with TVA Sports)

There's an election happening in the province of Alberta in Canada. Global, CTV, and CBC are presenting rolling coverage, while Citytv will be presenting special coverage at 8 PM and 11 PM.

 

Global is out of the gates early at 7 PM MT (1 hour before polls close). Their coverage is being broadcast out of Global Edmonton's studios, and is simulcast on Global Edmonton, Global Calgary, Global Lethbridge, Global News Radio, and online.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvk8hgjv7Fg

 

CBC begins their coverage at 7:30 PM MT from CBC Edmonton's studios, and is being broadcast on CBC Edmonton, CBC Calgary, and CBC News Network.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHPv5T0pvN8

 

CTV will start their coverage at 8 PM MT, not sure if CTV Calgary and CTV Edmonton will have separate coverage.

CTV Edmonton: https://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/video?playlistId=1.4381873

 

Citytv will have province wide coverage out of their Citytv Calgary studios. They won't have rolling coverage, according to the TV listings. The news specials will air from 8-9 PM, and 11 PM onwards.

I'm on mobile so I don't have links...

 

Your Money is a business channel in Australia, partnered up with Nine and Sky to provide business news and personal finance advice. It replaced the long running Sky News Business Channel and sorta launched with great fanfare back in October of last year.

 

Not even a year in... the channel goes out of business after Friday.

 

The venture was too unstainable for the companies to continue to collab on and now the space previously occupied by Sky News Business (launched in 2008, I think?) will be gone forever.

 

Sky will still have Sky News Live, Sky News Weather and Sky News Extra.

 

Let's take more good care of Your Money because we shelved out too much of Your Money out of a sinking ship (the TV channel) that will never be recovered.

 

The Guardian has posted about it but I'm on mobile so I can't provide links as fast as I used too.

Argentina: former sportscaster Sergio Gendler died today at the age of 53, after losing his battle with cancer. Here is a tribute from his former colleagues at Canal 13/TN, where he worked for 21 years between 1993 and 2014. He moved to Fox Sports in 2015, where he presented weekday editions of Central Fox.


Santo Biasatti, who worked with him for many years at Telenoche's anchordesk, cried while announcing his death on Crónica TV's morning show.

We will soon have a French equivalent of CTV in Canada as Bell Media is acquring V, the third-place network long behind TVA (#1) and ICI Radio-Canada Tele (#2).

 

http://www.bce.ca/news-and-media/releases/show/Bell-Media-to-Acquire-V-Network-and-Noovo-ca-1

Technically, Bell Globemedia (a predecessor) held a 40% share of V's former incarnation, TQS (with Cogeco owning the majority 60%).  The ownership was lost when TQS filed for bankruptcy and was purchased by Remstar.

 

One would assume that with Bell would restore local news to the V owned-and-operated stations and re-launch an in-house national news department.

I'm not counting on Bell to build local newsrooms across Quebec for V.

 

I reckon they'll start with a national (re: provincial) news operation out of Montreal (at CTV Montreal?), a parliamentary bureau in Ottawa using CTV's resources, stringers for regional Quebec, and dub any CTV News stories from across the country in French. 

 

Bell would probably have bigger issues to take care of before they get to news. Does anyone think a re-naming of the network might be in the works?

Speaking of CTV...

 

CTV is shutting down a slew of rebroadcast transmitters across Canada and will be finished by 2021. No surprise since CTV wanted them shut down a decade ago.

 

Four are repeaters of CKY Winnipeg while two are repeaters of CTV Northern Ontario.
