wait a minute

I was one of the sales people. I have been in media for 20 years. I agree Transit TV had kinks. Even after several years, kinks remained. I know about the volume issues among others. It failed because of dumbass management. But let me tell you this…TTV wasn’t elevator TV or screens above the urinal TV or “let’s find another way of selling BMW’s TV”. We provided a way for advertisers to reach a necessary demographic. Aids testing and trade school recruitment are just two groups that saw positive results from their time advertising on Transit TV. Transit TV is gone because the President of Torstar, Bob Prichard can’t figure out how to hire an effective sales staff to keep his stinking newspaper afloat. Too bad.
