Media News Digest: Stéphane Giroux to lead FPJQ, TVA cancels Le Banquier, 91.9 Sports gets Laval Rocket game rights

And a bunch of other stuff that has nothing to do with what happened in the midwest U.S. yesterday.

At the CRTC

  • The commission has released what it calls a policy about blocking of nuisance phone calls. It addresses the main points of the policy (What is a nuisance call? Do you block or just redirect? Do you implement network-wide or allow subscribers to choose?), but mainly kicks the can down the road hoping for more solutions from the industry. One thing it is concretely moving toward, however, is blocking of calls with blatantly illegitimate caller IDs (000-0000, your number, or a local number when it’s a long-distance call).
  • The CBC has filed an “as-built” application with the CRTC for CBMT-DT Montreal (CBC Television) so that the commission’s records match what is actually being used. The location, height and signal range are identical, but the transmitter power is actually 363,000 watts ERP instead of 436,340W.

    Unrelated to the stories here, I just want to mention Steve that while these posts are interesting and have a lot of “stuff”, they also don’t seem to provoke too much discussion. It’s like “where do you start”?
