Ottawa Television Studio “Gutted” by Fire

Sunday, February 7, 2010.

At about 10:30 A.M. I turned on the television to check something and saw headlines on the CTV News channel: CJOH (Ottawa’s CTV Station)  Newsroom gutted by fire.

Long time News anchor Max Keeping was being interviewed live, spoke of 50 years of priceless archived video footage being lost.
