Congratulations to John Ferri, VP of Current Affairs and Documentaries at TVO for receiving a 2018 ORION Leadership Award in Innovation. ORION’s Leadership Awards recognize individuals who have made a significant contribution to Ontario’s digital economy. John is helping to strengthen media coverage of local affairs by bringing underrepresented regional voices from Sudbury, Thunder Bay, London and Kingston, to the rest of Ontario through TVO’s Ontario Hubs project.
“This award from ORION validates the importance of TVO’s work in strengthening news gathering and reporting in underrepresented regional communities,” said Ferri. “Our Ontario Hubs project gives a platform to these diverse voices and varied perspectives, which allows us to create a more inclusive, engaged society.”
