CHEK Lives!

Yes, CHEK TV of Victoria, a former CanWest casualty, has been purchased by a consortium of local investors, former employees and CEP (Communications, Energy and Paperworkers), for the princely sum of $2. Though the odds against it are long (it’s been losing $12 million a year), perhaps a nonCanwest management can make a go of it. These kinds of labor/employee buys have sometimes been successful. Here’s hoping another lost media voice comes to life again.
