Appears so, according to the Citizen.
Will CTV Ottawa have a sportscast next week? Who else will get the axe besides Melissa Lamb and Lianne Laing? How has JJ managed to keep the wolves at bay?
And more importantly: at what point does Bell Media stop honouring the terms of its CRTC licences?November 20, 2017 at 10:54 PM #739892
What you are seeing now contributed to the two reasons for starting The Bulldog.
First, fewer media people and coverage.
Second, try to find a new economic model for journalism.
As it turned out, rather unexpectedly for me, comment became a vital part of The Bulldog. That’s especially important because locally, opinion has pretty much disappeared. We could call a forum for comment No. 3 perhaps.
Rather lofty and pretentious (maybe even arrogant) goals but The Bulldog has survived for six years and is turning a profit.
Others have tried The Bulldog model locally and failed. Don’t know yet if it is the answer. Perhaps I never will.
But the Dog appears to be becoming a local meeting place in a world where traditional touchstones are disappearing.
