One of my favorite bloggers is back, and in better format than ever. From his blog,David Talks/ The Berner Monologues :
Happy New Year All!
Here is my announcement:
This month I am beginning a new television show.
I am partnering with SHAW TV CABLE 4 to launch a half-hour weekly public affairs show that will be broadcast on SHAW TV CABLE 4 four times each week.
We are taping the first show on Thursday, January 20th. I am not yet sure of the first air date, but, of course, I will let you know and here is the tentative schedule for the run:
As for the name of the show…we hired a dozen focus groups and flew them by private jet up to a remote private fishing resort for consultation. After three intense and sleepless days and nights, we came up with…
That’s how it will be listed in your favorite media.
Here is what the show will look like and what it is about:
“Charlie Rose” style, the Host and one or two guests at a round table before a black cyclorama.
Host and guest(s) dig into the major headline story of the week and get behind the headlines to reveal the as-yet unspoken truths.
Did the Liberal government buy the silence of two felons? Is it credible that these two petty crooks acted alone?
What was the role of Patrick Kinsella, who we are led to believe was, at one and the same time, working for CN Rail, BC Rail and the premier’s office? Is this not conflict of interest?
What of Gary Collins, the Finance Minister at the time, and the boss of Dave Basi? Why did he jump to private industry, working for an airline that went bankrupt only a few months later?
Our guest, [TO BE ANNOUNCED] has been following this story from the beginning.
The show is sponsored by a number of local companies and we have reached a cross-promotional agreement with the Vancouver Courier newspaper.
I will begin posting the blog about a week before we begin the show. The show will also be posted regularly to YouTube and to this blog.
When I left radio in April ’06, I really thought that I had put my broadcast days behind me. So this is great fun and I am very much looking forward to getting back on air and stirring the pot.
Hope you’ll ride along with us.
Health and prosperity!
Ahhhhhhhhh. I can’t wait for this.
