    Jimmy Kimmel Show making Niagara detour

    No Comments

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The Jimmy Kimmel Show will be filming segments in Niagara Falls next week, but it’s still unclear whether Kimmel himself will be here.

    Robin Garrett, CEO of the Tourism Partnership of Niagara, said there’s no guarantee the popular ABC talk show host will appear, but “we are negotiating that as we speak.”

    But fans of Kimmel’s security guard sidekick Guillermo are in luck. The show is sending him to do humorous red carpet interviews during the Toronto International Film Festival, and from Sept. 12 to 15 he’ll make sporadic visits to Niagara Falls for segments to air next week.

    Luring the show to Niagara Falls was a joint effort between Tourism Toronto, Ontario Tourism Marketing Partnership, Canadian Tourism Commission, Tourism Partnership of Niagara and Air Canada.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The head of Niagara’s tourism marketing organization says it has been “as transparent as we can” and insists it played by the rules when it issued a $500,000 untendered contract to publish a promotional magazine.

    “I trust the folks around this table. They vetted it and decided it was a good project,” said Dragan Matovic, chairman of the Niagara’s regional tourism organization.
