Three times a week — Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings — I join Rick Lowes of the Moose-FM affiliate in Haliburton to shoot the breeze about the news of the day.
I look upon this as a public service.
Usually, he attempts to take me to task about my slant in a particular editorial I have penned for Sun Media, but lately we have had more than a few discussions about Sun News Network, a national television station that I appear on regularly but was recently unavailable to anyone who had Bell satellite of Bell cable as their television provider.
If you had Shaw, which many in the near north have as a provider, then you had Sun TV the moment it went on the air back in April.
But now our beef with Bell is over.
So, if you want hard news and straight talk with a decidedly conservative bent you can now get it on Bell satellite channel 506, or on channel 531 on Fibe.
If this sounds like a commercial, fair enough.
But if you, like me, are tired of the left-wing slant of the public broadcaster, closely followed by CTV, it is worth taking a look at this alternative.
You’ve been hearing my voice now for over five years, reading me in the Toronto Sun for decades, and now you will be able to see what I look like.
But a word of warning: It ain’t pretty.
