Close to 20 years providing TV news on the net!
Channel Canada was created by Randi Dertzo and John Melville back in 2001. They maintained the site together for more than 10 years until 2012 when John decided to move on to pursue other projects.
From 1993 to 1998, Randi maintained Montreal’s Favorite TV Shows, his very first website! There was no RSS, Twitter or Facebook at that time so it was much more difficult to get all the info!
In 1998 up until the summer of 2001, he created and maintained Canada’s TV Zone. In the summer of 2001, John and Randi launched Channel Canada. They relaunched the site with a new skin in 2006 and continued maintaining it together until 2012. The site was re-launched again in 2019 with a new look.
In 2018, long time forum member CDN Viewer joined Channel Canada and now runs the website as main content editor. He is now the heart & soul behind all the new sections and articles popping up on the website including the new “TV Series” and “Online TV” sections.
