A-Channel hosts Ottawa Renegades Town Hall Meeting
OTTAWA and the Valley - With the future of football in the nation's capital once again in doubt, A-Channel News will be hosting a special, 30-minute "Ottawa Renegades Town Hall Meeting" on Wednesday, March 29.
The program will air at 6:30 p.m., live from the station's 87 George Street headquarters, offering an open forum format, featuring a respected panel of football insiders. The Town Hall Meeting will also welcome questions and feedback from a studio audience.
"The Renegades are an important part of the sports landscape in the Ottawa community and fans are passionate about their football," said Peter Angione, News Director of A-Channel Ottawa. "We hope this Town Hall Meeting will offer our viewers an opportunity to examine these issues facing the future of CFL football in the national capital region."
A three-person panel of respected football observers with Ottawa connections has been assembled for the event. Eric Tillman, a two-time Grey Cup winning general manager, who was entrusted with the Renegades' top football operations position when the franchise was born, will join Ottawa native Jason Kralt (presently a linebacker on the team's roster) and Jeff Avery, a former Ottawa Rough Rider receiver who is now a successful businessman in the city as well as a colour analyst for Renegade games on TEAM 1200 Sports radio.
The Ottawa Renegades Town Hall Meeting will examine where the franchise presently is; how it got to this point and where the team goes from here. Invited to the forum are fans, Renegades players and front office personnel, city officials, business people from the city, local media and Ottawa football alumni.
