From CP via CTV.ca: Quebecor Media has hit a snag in its effort to have its new 24 hour news network a must-carry channel on cable and satellite, The Canadian Press has learned. The broadcasting regulator has told Quebecor that its proposed Sun TV news channel, dubbed Fox News North by rivals, won’t be considered [...]
Quebecor CEO Pierre-Karl Peladeau and Kory Teneckye, late of the PMO, want to bring hard news and straight talk to the nation’s cable TV subscribers — and they want to be put in a privileged position to do so.
This is mildly mind-boggling. It does suggest the question of whether Quebecor Media Inc. (QMI) wants to become Fox News North as the Toronto Star suggests.
