    From the St Catharines Standard:

    A new group of investors plans to give Niagara its own television station by November.

    Niagara Now TV is scheduled to begin programming on Cogeco digital cable in November, Peter Hayman, the chief executive officer for the Peninsula Broadcasting Corp., said at a regional council meeting Thursday.

    “This is television for Niagarans, by Niagarans,” said Hayman, who added the channel will have its own news reporting staff but will also include “user-generated content” from residents.

    “The three words of our mantra are fun, affordable and inclusive.”

    Hayman said the group hopes to provide training and work opportunities for aspiring local journalists.

    “Our young brain trust doesn’t have to leave the region,” he told councillors.

    The channel will be available on the Internet and to residents who have Cogeco digital cable, Hayman said.
