ROGERS TV CELEBRATES 40 YEARS OF LOCAL TELEVISION

WATERLOO REGION – Rogers TV celebrates its 40th anniversary with a special presentation of Retro Rewind: Celebrating Rogers TV's 40th featuring Phil Lind, Vice Chairman, Rogers Communications Inc. and Colette Watson, Vice President of Rogers TV on Tuesday, November 17th at 7 PM, on Cable 20 in Waterloo Region.

From the September 1982 premiere of "The Sex Show" with Sex Educator and Registered Nurse, Sue Johanson to the extensive coverage of the tragic ice storm of 1998, Retro Rewind: Celebrating Rogers TV's 40th will take viewers on a journey through some of the most exciting and interesting local programming on Rogers TV since its start in 1969.

Award-winning broadcaster and host, Dale Goldhawk will bring to life some of the best moments in information, public affairs, comedy, talk shows and sports broadcasts and will also include testimonials from Rogers TV alumni like Dan Aykroyd as they recall their contributions and exciting moments as part of Rogers TV's journey and ongoing success.

"The programming on Rogers TV today reflects just how far community television has come, but also demonstrates that we've never strayed far from our original vision of providing locally-produced and focused TV," says Phil Lind, a pioneer of Canadian community television. "We produce more local sports, entertainment, news and lifestyle programming than anyone else. We offer programming that reflects the diversity of our cities. And we focus on the matters that matter most, close to home”.

Rogers TV is a one-of-a-kind TV channel tailor-made for local audiences. Every year, our stations proudly produce over 17,000 hours of original, informative local programming; reinforcing Rogers Cable's commitment to the communities we serve. Rogers TV is a service available exclusively to cable customers as part of the basic service of Rogers Cable Communications Inc., Canada's largest cable company, delivering high quality entertainment, information and communication services to 2.3 million customers in Ontario, New Brunswick and Newfoundland.
