Baton Broadcasting

Long ago taken over by ex-CBC majordomo Ivan Fecan and owned by BCE but formerly owned by rich, autocratic folks with names like Eaton and Bassett. Baton was the original attempt to make a convincing argument that private sector television can replace the CBC by hiring any CBC alumni willing to snort a few lines of cocaine with the private sector. The model has been scrapped in favour of defunding the CBC and/or bullying it into acting like Fox Broadcasting.
