    Fledgling Niagara TV station off the air

    No Comments

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Niagara’s latest attempt at a local TV station has faded to black — at least for now.

    Niagara News TV president Frank Thibault said the St. Catharines-based station suspended operations Monday, putting 17 people out of work.

    “We’re trying to figure out a way to come back,” said Thibault, who added investors will meet Saturday to discuss a possible fall relaunch. “But we had to let the staff go … we don’t know for sure how this is going to play out.”

    Parks Commission faces uphill task to educate visitors about Niagara

    From Bullet Media:

    Niagara Falls may be one of the world’s most famous tourist attractions, but many visitors, even those from this country, just want to take a fast look at the water, buy some icewine, and head down the QEW to Toronto.

    And that’s a serious problem, says Niagara Parks Commission Chairwoman Fay Booker.

    “We have to do a much better job of educating people in our prospective markets,” she said during a Parks Commission meeting Wednesday morning. “We have to tell people there is so much more to do here. We have to keep them here longer.”
