TVO goes On the Road to Windsor



    
    Two-day event combines social media and live broadcast of The Agenda with
    Steve Paikin
    

    TORONTO, Sept. 29 /CNW/ - TVO's flagship current affairs program, The
Agenda with Steve Paikin, is embarking on a highly anticipated five-stop tour
for a series of interactive explorations of the changing nature of Ontario's
regional economies - and the resulting social impact on our communities.
    The first of the On the Road specials will focus on Ontario's troubled
manufacturing economy, and will broadcast live from the Art Gallery of Windsor
Monday October 20 at 8:00 p.m.
    "Providing a platform for smart, informed discussions is something we're
committed to at TVO," says Chief Executive Officer Lisa de Wilde. "The Agenda
with Steve Paikin: On the Road represents a significant milestone in our use
of participatory media to engage Ontario's citizens in important provincial
issues."
    One of the highlights of The Agenda with Steve Paikin: On the Road is the
AgendaCamp, an innovative TVO-hosted community forum the day before the live
regional broadcast. Marrying internet-based social media and face-to-face
interaction, the AgendaCamp brings together community leaders, policy makers,
members of the public, program guests, anchor Steve Paikin and invited
bloggers to problem solve around the major economic issues and challenges of
the sector. A wider online audience will be able to follow and contribute to
the AgendaCamp at www.tvo.org/theagenda . Ideas arising from the AgendaCamp
will be incorporated into the next evening's live broadcast. The AgendaCamp at
the first roadstop will take place at the Art Gallery of Windsor on Sunday
October 19.
    "We aim to bring viewers right into the discussion," adds anchor and
senior editor Steve Paikin. "This is a powerful opportunity to meet with
Ontarians in their own communities, and to listen to their perspectives on the
economic trends that are affecting them so close to home."

    
    The Agenda with Steve Paikin: On the Road is also coming to:
    -   Sault Ste. Marie, November 16/17: The Resource-Based economy
    -   Eastern Ontario, January 18/19: The Agrarian economy
    -   Thunder Bay, February 8/9: The Aboriginal economy
    -   Waterloo, March 29/30: The Innovation economy
