Village Media plans to launch this fall, a hyperlocal digital publication focused on Toronto’s downtown core, specifically the geographic boundary from Dufferin on the west to Bloor on the north, the Don Valley Parkway on the east and extending to the water on the south, exploring housing, business, arts and culture, health, the environment and more. Village Media already operates 23 daily news websites across Ontario, a regional business publication, Queen’s Park news bureau The Trillium, and lifestyle publication Village Life.

Crunch Time, a partnership between TikTok, MLSE and Frito Lay Canada, will be the first program launched in the Creator Zone. Streaming live on TikTok, the 12-part content series will stream live from Scotiabank Arena ahead of select Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Raptors home pre-game broadcasts, exploring the culture that surrounds sport. The first episode debuted Feb. 14 as the Raptors faced the Indiana Pacers, with the Leafs’ first Crunch Time programming to stream Feb. 17.
