Speakers Corner Segment Citytv Toronto Early 2000's
A feature segment of Speakers Corner that was produced by Citytv in Toronto in the early 2000s
Speakers' Corner is a brand owned by Rogers Media that is used for its television segments airing on Citytv. The namesake television series aired weekly on CHUM Limited's television stations Citytv and A (formerly A-Channel) stations in Canada from 1990 to 2008, featuring numerous short segments on a variety of topics as recorded by members of the general public in the form of rants, big-ups, shoutouts, jokes, music performances, etc. After the video was complete, it was edited for television.
The show was an example of Citytv founder Moses Znaimer's philosophy of interactive broadcasting and essentially created what some 21st-century media outlets would retroactively label as a precursor to YouTube.
