October 4

“♪October 4 we open the door, October 5 we go live.♫”

This was our slogan at CIVI (The New VI) ten years ago as we launched Canada’s first 100% digital Television station. No analog equipment in the building. It was ground breaking and monumental.

About two dozen of us got together this weekend to reunite and celebrate what we had achieved, a few even still work there. I started as a studio news Camera man and graduated to News Writer and Associate Producer before my nine month contract expired. Its still one of the few jobs that I would return to in a heartbeat.
