About

Cartt.ca publishes breaking news, in-depth feature stories, analysis and opinion geared specifically towards the men and women working in the cable, radio, television and telecom industries in Canada. Breaking news and top-notch analysis and commentary is posted as it happens while twice-weekly newsletters compile those stories and deliver them directly to subscribers.

Cartt.ca is a web-based news leader. It’s not a blog. It’s not a forum. It is journalism. Cartt.ca is run by experienced journalists and strives to serve readers across several industries which were once separate but now are undeniably intertwined.

Cartt.ca will provide fact, analysis and opinion of the day’s issues and events – with crucial history and context specific to the cable, radio, television and telecom industries. Its publisher and founder, Greg O’Brien, has been a journalist for 30 years, the last 20-plus of which have been spent exclusively covering the electronic media and telecom sectors. Editor Amanda Oye earned her PhD in Communications and Culture as well as journalism degree prior to that, while her family has a background in telecom.

Cartt.ca will seek and break news from the Canadian telecom and electronic media industry (and from the U.S. and around the world, too, where applicable) and not merely repeat the spin.

Cartt.ca is based in Hamilton, Ontario, which is situated upon the traditional territories of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Mississaugas. This land is covered by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, which was an agreement between the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabek to share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. We further acknowledge that this land is covered by the Between the Lakes Purchase, 1792, between the Crown and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.
