For 12 to 17 year-olds: FLIP
FLIP is the all-new daily for teens. The only one of its kind on the air
in Canada and live on YouTube, FLIP is a chillin' half-hour about
what's new on the web. The show is a model of interactiveness with its
social media-connected viewers. Comments and questions are shared with
everyone watching and the team answers live. FLIP is hosted by a (real)
group of buddies, Alex, Meilie, LP, and Francesca. Their exchanges are
punctuated by the best current videos, hidden-camera sketches, song
parodies, features by YouTubers, and interactions with the audience.
