While in the big city recently, the girls and I were invited to tour the Toronto waterfront headquarters of Corus Entertainment…and had so much fun!
Since we arrived early (shocker, right?) we spent some time on Sugar Beach (adjacent to the Redpath Sugar Factory) right outside the building. No swimming allowed, but what fun to get our toes in the sand in the middle of such an urban environment!
Eva asks Rick about kids on social media, whether he prefers hosting on TV or radio, and what it was like to interview one of her favourite stars.
Liv throws Fred some hard-hitting questions about comic books, the appeal of radio, and back-to-school. He is particularly passionate about one school supply…
The hosts were so kind and accommodating – what a great experience for my girls! (Thanks Fred, Mel and Rick!)
While I had some idea about the wide variety of Corus brands (including radio and television), Eva was hooked when she heard that YTV was in the building, along with the Disney Channel. (My favourites would have to be W, HGTV and of course CHEX Television in Peterborough, the first station to let me on live TV!)
As the tour continued, we saw your usual run-of-the-mill workplace fixtures, like the two-storey slide…wait, what?? (I was the official photographer, but I did take a turn myself!)
Thanks for inviting us in, Corus…we had a blast!
