On October 22, 2018, CBC Toronto’s digital team took an innovative approach to municipal election coverage, producing the organization’s first-ever live vertical show (9×16) that streamed live on Facebook. The program also included a partnership with Twitter Canada.
Program Producer Victoria Valido and Digital Producer John Rieti will share how CBC Toronto conceptualized and executed the election special from start to finish, as well as how coverage was informed by the social audience.
