Oct 22, 2009
"Citytv received a number of funny entries and in the end we chose Doug as the COCC because he captured the essence of the new comedies, brought physical comedy and graphic know-how to his video, and is someone viewers could look forward to seeing each week," says Koreen Ott, Director of Marketing and PR, Rogers Media Television. "Most importantly, Doug exemplifies comedic sensibility and continues to make us laugh no matter how many times we play his video." To view Doug Stevenson's winning submission visit www.Citytv.com.
Citytv launched the COCC contest at the start of the new Fall TV season to encourage Canadians from coast-to-coast to tune-in and watch the hilarious new comedies. The online open casting call to search for funny Canadians resulted in humorous video entries uploaded to www.Citytv.com and YouTube.
"I grew up watching Citytv and I love making people laugh, so when I saw this contest, I knew I really wanted the role! I'm looking forward to being part of the Citytv family and reporting on the fall comedy line-up each week," says
