A Canadian entrepreneur and an American Internet giant are hoping to bring The Huffington Post to Canada’s television dial.
Toronto-based Evan Kosiner, who heads Kosiner Venture Capital Inc., has filed an application with the federal broadcast regulator for permission to add HuffPost Live, a daily Web-based news and conversation show, to the list of foreign channels approved for Canadian TV.
HuffPost Live broadcasts free online and its programming is made up of short segments and interviews, often conducted via Skype.
