"As became abundantly clear at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, Canadians love to celebrate their own," said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. "Music, like sport, touches, lifts and unites us. Musical artists, like athletes, work tirelessly and often with little recognition. THE JUNO AWARDS is one night where we can shine the spotlight on the individuals and groups who inspire us year round."
