Canadian Airlines International will sponsor a major series of public affairs programs on ctv next year hosted by the network’s anchorman, Lloyd Robertson.

Details about the series are sketchy, but it is thought it will consist of documentaries.

A spokeswoman for Canadian at its headquarters in Edmonton was unaware of the airline’s tv venture, but promised to provide some details of it.

At press time, Canadian had not made that follow-up phone call.

Gail Morrell, vice-president of corporate communications and director of programming at ctv, confirmed the network’s involvement with the Canadian-sponsored series, but referred other questions to Eric Morrison, ctv’s vice-president of news.

Morrell says Morrison, after conferring with Canadian, declined to comment on the upcoming programs. DC
