What’s new? Well, we’re back after a six-ish month hiatus that was meant to be a permanent cancellation, for one thing.
And we’re a “we” for another.
I’ll still do what I used to do – post the evening’s listings for new episodes, link to articles about Canadian TV from elsewhere on the web, and write the occasional interview or rant … I mean, op-ed.
But you’ll notice a big difference in the amount of original, professional content on the site. I’ve taken on a partner, Greg David, formerly of TV Guide Canada, and we recruited a team of contributors who will help us do reviews, interviews, features, and podcasts. Check out their bios.
We’ve been able to make this happen because of the incredible, unbelievable, generous support from you, our readers.
We launched a little Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to raise $1,500 so Greg and I could get the site up and running until we could find stable funding, and it exploded. In less than a week we exceeded our goal by over 1000%. We’re now stretching to $20,000 while seeking ongoing advertising and sponsorship.
The dream is to have a financially sustainable site that supports professional journalism about Canadian television. With your help we’re already on our way.
If you can contribute, or spread the word, the Indiegogo campaign is live until August 24.
If you want to talk to us about advertising or sponsorship, please get in touch.
And if you want to come to a place where Canadian television is worthy of serious discussion, welcome to the new TV, eh? We’re thrilled to be back.
