Metropolis at Metrotown Hosts National Broadcaster

This weekend, Metropolis at Metrotown is hosting CBC Live! in its grand court. It’s an opportunity for the national television broadcaster to build closer ties to the public that helps fund it. It’s also an opportunity for Metropolis shoppers to meet the personalities they see on television daily.

The day promises a lot of entertainment. Shoppers will get to try out the weather broadcast, record radio promos, and win plenty of giveaways. Two meet and greets are scheduled with stars of many of the station’s news and reality shows. Shoppers can also stick around and watch special presentations of Live Right Now, the national health challenge, and Meet the Dragon, where three lucky winners will pitch their ideas to one of the Dragons’ Den judges.

The biggest draw is, as Metropolis puts it, the chance to win an interview with Canada’s boyfriend. That’s George Stroumboulopoulos, an interviewer who’s headed several prime-time shows on CBC. Shoppers are making audition tapes now, and one will be chosen to ask Stroumboulopoulos five questions of their own. The interview will be filmed and posted online for the whole nation to see.
