As interns, we have the unique opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at how our government works and the legislative process. We get to see first hand how each internal part helps further the Legislature’s ultimate goals and public policy initiatives. But with the generous support of our sponsors, we also get to see the behind the scenes of some of the top industries in Ontario. Today, our sponsor spotlight is on Rogers Communication and our visit to their Toronto studio.
On our tour of Sportsnet, we visited several different sets of their regular shows including Tim and Sid, Canada’s sports duo. We all had our fun looking around the set, checking out the broadcasting equipment and taking turns playing the role of the program’s hosts. We also had the chance to walk through the bullpen where we saw all the sports journalists hard at work watching playbacks of sports games, checking player stats, and scanning social media for new material. You could definitely feel the energy in the room!
Finally, we sat down with Jodi Parps the Manager of Government Relations. Her portfolio covers both provincial and municipal jurisdictions. She explained the unique features of doing GR for an international telecommunications organization like Rogers that has so many multifaceted operations including service delivery and content creation.
Thank you so much to Jodi and the whole team at Rogers that took time to show us around. We loved spending our Friday afternoon with you. We really appreciate your continuous support for OLIP!
