Same Bat-channel, New Bat-address...

In case you were curious, I have changed venues for my job with Citytv. (It's not what you see above.)


Where are you now?
Bathurst and Fleet St. – close to the Island Airport. You can call it the Omni building, if that helps you sleep at night.

I thought Citytv was going to be by the Eaton Centre.
Citytv’s main HQ is going to be at the current Olympic Spirit building at Dundas Square sometime in the future. This location is strictly for closers.

So, like... what do you do again?
Promos, baby. That’s a television commercial that implores you to watch something you don’t want to watch; especially when it’s on at a “special time”.

Where is Moses in all of this?
Couldn’t care less. Try Classical 96.

So you work for CTV?
Nope. Rogers.
CTV is the enemy. Rogers is for people who love to hear complaints about the price of iPhones - something that nobody should want to buy in the first place.

So you’re with CTV?

Then who’s in the “Citytv Building” now?
Wall-to-wall CTV. They now own MuchMusic, Space and all the other doodads created by CHUM many years ago.

What’s CHUM?
Bloody fish guts that attract sharks and hostile takeovers.

When my food’s ready, why doesn’t my microwave stop beeping the moment I open the door? It must know that I have been sufficiently alerted. Also, why is there a button for chicken and meat?
Microwaves are astoundingly stupid.

So what’s it like working at CTV?
It rocks!
