Category:TVO The Agenda
The Agenda with Steve Paikin is TVOntario's flagship current affairs program, hosted by Steve Paikin. The program's creation was announced as part of programming and re-structuring changes at TVOntario on June 29, 2006.
The program's format is designed to provide in-depth coverage of specific contemporary social issues, and will also offer user-generated content. The show practises what Paikin calls "long-form" journalism; each program tackles no more than two topics, and often no more than one. "We are going to be out there giving people what they've been telling us they want: more intelligent analysis, and more robust, thought-provoking debate and discussion among newsmakers and experts," Paikin says.
TVOntario is embarking on a new digital strategy that they announced earlier this summer, and some of The Agenda's content is available on demand through technologies like iPods, PDAs and video-enabled phones.
