I’m incredibly excited about the launch of the long-anticipated JUNO TV! The online channel’s exclusive programming, introduced today by The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS), will showcase Canada’s vibrant music scene 365 days a year. JUNO TV was made possible with the support of the Ontario Media Development Corporation on behalf of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport.
Every Tuesday at www.junotv.ca, Canadian music fans can access new programming that features today’s hottest stars and pays tribute to historic JUNO Awards moments. Content will also be syndicated via social media such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
Four programs will be featured on JUNO TV: STRANDED, in which today’s hottest artists, such as Carly Rae Jepsen, Down With Webster and Dragonette, talk about the 5 things they can’t live without; TAKE TWO, where iconic artists such as Maestro Fresh Wes and Jim Cuddy (Blue Rodeo) and Alan Doyle (Great Big Sea) discuss their defining JUNO moments; THE EXPERTS, featuring Canada’s entertainment movers
and shakers offering their candid insights (experts include Randy Lennox, President
and CEO of Universal Music Canada, and myself); and VINTAGE VIDS, which will unearth classic JUNO Awards performances and other highlights.
Ok, so, here’s my segment. And yes, I sit like this all the time.
