On Monday, July 6th our Professional Sound and Business – Studio Production Major and Entertainment Business Management students visited Corus Entertainment in Toronto. Formed in 1999, Corus Entertainment is a Canadian media and broadcasting company with prominent holdings in radio, publishing and television.
Our students visited Corus Entertainment with instructor Rob Johnston as part of their Broadcast Management course which provides students with an extensive overview of broadcast industry operations and the interrelationships between music and broadcast business.
While at Corus Entertainment, our students were able to sit in on Wade MacNeil’s radio show in the 102.1 TheEdge studio. Currently, Wade is a radio personality for 102.1 TheEdge and vocalist of UK-based band Gallows. Wade is the founding member (guitar/vocals) of both Alexisonfire and Black Lungs.
Our students are pictured below in the 102.1 TheEdge studio with Wade:
