Happy New Year All!

Here is my announcement:

This month I am beginning a new television show.

I am partnering with SHAW TV CABLE 4 to launch a half-hour weekly public affairs show that will be broadcast on SHAW TV CABLE 4 four times each week.

We are taping the first show on Thursday, January 20th. I am not yet sure of the first air date, but, of course, I will let you know and here is the tentative schedule for the run:

Tuesdays 10:30p
Wednesdays 8:30p
Fridays 2:30p
Monday 4:30am

As for the name of the show...we hired a dozen focus groups and flew them by private jet up to a remote private fishing resort for consultation. After three intense and sleepless days and nights, we came up with...


That's how it will be listed in your favorite media.

Here is what the show will look like and what it is about:

“Charlie Rose” style, the Host and one or two guests at a round table before a black cyclorama.

Host and guest(s) dig into the major headline story of the week and get behind the headlines to reveal the as-yet unspoken truths.

Did the Liberal government buy the silence of two felons? Is it credible that these two petty crooks acted alone?

What was the role of Patrick Kinsella, who we are led to believe was, at one and the same time, working for CN Rail, BC Rail and the premier’s office? Is this not conflict of interest?

What of Gary Collins, the Finance Minister at the time, and the boss of Dave Basi? Why did he jump to private industry, working for an airline that went bankrupt only a few months later?

Our guest, [TO BE ANNOUNCED] has been following this story from the beginning.

The show is sponsored by a number of local companies and we have reached a cross-promotional agreement with the Vancouver Courier newspaper.

I will begin posting the blog about a week before we begin the show. The show will also be posted regularly to YouTube and to this blog.

When I left radio in April '06, I really thought that I had put my broadcast days behind me. So this is great fun and I am very much looking forward to getting back on air and stirring the pot.

Hope you'll ride along with us.

Health and prosperity!

Forgot to add.... I've added Vancouver Courier Newspaper to my NEWS bookmarks.

I hadn't previously known about this newspaper.

Looking forward to watching your show.

Vancouver, BC, & Canada will very much benefit from your wise voice back on the airwaves, David!

David, for those of us stuck with a Telus contract... what are we to do?

Will it be online? I'm so disappointed that I can't watch.

Norm Farrell said...

Welcome back. Your opinions are always worth reading.

Great news Mr. B!

And can't wait to see if you can get to the heart of the matter (and/or the win/place/show window) on that putative trifecta that was PK's potential High Flyer.

Well done! Your particular style and point of view has been missed. Look forward to both seeing and hearing what so many of us were used to reading here!

Jeff Taylor said...

Thank God ! Now the "right" questions will once again begin to be asked in this province. For what seems like years now, way too many people in BC have been given a free ride to do and say whatever it is they want with NOBODY asking them the tough questions and holding them to account. David, be as tough as possible, and expose the bastards !

Welcome back David. This is great news!

L' chaim! Mazel tov! Break a leg! Oh wait, don't do that...

Wonderful. Will be sure to tune in.

Leah said...

Yayyyyyyyy!! Helluva way to start a New Year David, thanks! We need you.

Robert said...

Welcome back David. This is fantastic news! You have been missed.

Keith said...

Congratulations David. I remember you were on cable on the North Shore doing interviews in a restaurant setting.

Kick some ass Berner.....The Straight Goods is not adverse to giving TV and movie reviews..

Two thumbs up or two thumbs down...

The mainstream media would have to remove their appendages from their own asses before they could vote!

Hard news sells....Sniffing BC Liberal asses does not.

Cheers-Eyes Wide Open

This is the best news I have heard since the great-gas-bag got fired from ctv!

It will be great to hear your voice again David.

I know you will, but please take up the cause of our descent into insantity in Vancouver municipal politics.
