BBM Canada Announces Rebranding To Numeris
Toronto ON

BBM Canada, the industry standard in broadcast audience measurement, today announced that it has changed its name to Numeris. Rooted in a 70-year history of providing timely, accurate, business-critical information to its membership, the new name along with a new identity reinforce the organization's position as the most respected industry source for audience and consumer behaviour intelligence. Numeris has adopted a new name, visual identity and tagline, Audiences Count.

"We are excited to announce this evolution in our organization. As Numeris, our members have access to the same exceptional information and services on which they have come to rely, including sophisticated data tracking and measurement technologies that help them gain valuable audience insights and deliver relevant, high quality programming to Canadian consumers," explains Jim MacLeod, Numeris President and Chief Executive Officer. "Building on the foundation we have developed as a trusted and respected partner, the new brand identity articulates our key mandate – to partner with our members to be a driving force in shaping the Canadian media landscape."

Working with branding and communications agency, Cundari, Numeris sought to ground the visual identity in the organization's extensive experience and industry insight to position it for an energetic and innovative future. The brand identity elements, including the name, logo, tagline and colours capture the authority, transparency, accuracy and relevancy of the information and services the organization provides.

"The name Numeris connotes numbers and measurement and the new logo, made up of carefully selected coloured dots, is inspired by the reliable and trustworthy character of the organization as well as its dynamic future," says MacLeod.

The logo's dominant "N" formed by coloured dots suggests the bringing together of multiple data points as well as representing the many individuals who are instrumental in making significant business decisions that impact the future of Canadian broadcasting. The new tagline Audiences Count reflects both that viewers and listeners are counted and the importance of their opinion in influencing decisions made about programming.

"We had an opportunity to develop a brand that would provide greater clarity into who we are and how we serve our broadcaster, advertiser and agency members," says Mr. MacLeod. "In a media landscape that is changing at the speed of light, Numeris members can trust in our ability to deliver credible industry data and intelligence to respond to the changes and ensure they continually provide relevant, high quality programming to Canadians."

John Hinnen 2014 OAB Hall Of Fame Inductee
Markham ON

The Ontario Association of Broadcasters is proud to present the 2014 OAB Hall of Fame Award to John Hinnen.

John Hinnen and his family emigrated from the Netherlands in 1960, arriving in Canada at Pier 21 in Halifax. As he learned English, John developed a love for the power of the language that led him to excel at school and in the world of radio.

John's broadcasting career began at Humber college, where he was among the first in a newly created broadcasting course in 1972. His first radio job was at CKLB (now CKDO) in Oshawa. He moved to Rogers in 1974 as a sportscaster for CFTR. In 1993, John lead the team that transformed CFTR from a music station to Canada's first all-news radio station, 680News. John recently retired after four decades with Rogers, including more than 20 years at the helm of 680News as Vice-President of News for Rogers Media Television and Radio.

Hinnen says, "For me, 680News has been just one incredible ride. As the person who programmed the station from day one, and to see it rise to the number one station in Canada, has been nothing but a dream come true."

John spent many years on the OAB Board, contributing to initiatives such as the Amber Alert program and the OAB Career Day that connects students with broadcast professionals. John served as President of the Radio-Television News Directors Association and was presented with the RTNDA President's Award in 2011, which is the highest honour bestowed by that organization. The presentation was made at the RTNDA conference at the Westin Hotel in Halifax, which is next to Pier 21, the very pier where John and his family had arrived in Canada more than fifty years before.

There are over 700 private licensed radio and audio services across Canada, informing us, entertaining us and keeping us up-to-date with what is happening on a local, regional, national and international level. The people who work in radio are dedicated to bringing us a level of excellence we have come to expect from the "voices on our radios."

The OAB Hall of Fame Award honours private broadcasters who have devoted a substantial part of their career to the Canadian broadcasting industry and demonstrated a commitment to the highest standards of broadcast excellence and community service in their role.

The OAB annual fall conference, CONNECTION 2014, takes place on Thursday, October 30th at the Toronto Airport Marriott Hotel, 901 Dixon Road in Toronto. The Gala Awards Dinner where John will receive his award will immediately follow the conference at 5:30 p.m. It opens with a reception with dinner to follow at 6:30p.m.

Full conference tickets including Gala Award Dinner tickets are $199 for members, $249 for non-members. Dinner only tickets are available for $99 for members and $129 for non-members.

Pat Dubois morning show co-host and Music Director of 92.9 The Bull received the Western Association of Broadcasters(WAB) “Leaders of Tomorrow” Award yesterday, June 12th in Banff at the Annual WAB Conference.

“This award is given to those Leaders of Tomorrow who are under 30 and have demonstrated leadership and skill in broadcasting. The purpose of the award is to honour employees of WAB member stations who have reached a significant level of success but have not reached the age of 30, and to promote mentorship and professional development by introducing these leaders to the established business community and by promoting them as role models for others.”

Pat started at Saskatoon Media Group while still in high school at the age of 17. He worked his way from the ground-up starting as a “gopher” for the Promotion and Technical departments and was the in-studio producer for Saskatoon Blades WHL broadcasts, as well as part time in commercial Production.

After high school, Pat decided to take up broadcasting as a career, specifically as a producer. Three years later Pat made the transition to on-air personality working evenings and weekends on 92.9 The Bull. In 2009, Pat advanced to the drive shift, 2p-6p and became the Bull’s Music Director. In 2011, Pat moved up to co-host mornings and remains there today.

Pat has been involved in many charitable endeavours since he was 9 years old when he started helping with CJWW Denny Carr’s Secret Santa distribution day. Throughout his teenage years he has volunteered for Timmy’s Snowarama, Meewasin Foundation skating and gift shop and Parent Council school fun nights. While still in school he also volunteered for fashion shows, as a hockey referee and baseball umpire.

Today Pat is involved in the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan, Cosmo Industries and volunteers his services as host/master of ceremonies for several charity fundraising events throughout the year. Whether you need an MC, talent judge or whatever the cause, Pat is the first one to step up to the plate to volunteer and represent 92.9 The Bull.

Saskatoon Media Group consisting of CJWW, 98COOL, 92.9 The Bull, and congratulates Pat Dubois on this great accomplishment.
