Oprah Winfrey Network Canada to air Ryerson student-produced TV show

October 27, 2014

A television show produced by Ryerson University students will air on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) Canada early next year. The program, entitled The Naked Entrepreneur, will debut on Rogers TV this week before being broadcast on OWN beginning in January. The show will feature Ryerson professor Sean Wise interviewing notable Canadian entrepreneurs. “This is a tremendous learning opportunity for our students," said Charles Falzon, Chair of Ryerson’s RTA School of Media. Former student Abou Shackra, who helped work on the show, said, "The Naked Entrepreneur gave me practical, hands-on experience by helping to create a television program from concept to execution … It also gave me a glimpse of some of the challenges that entrepreneurs go through, as well as their hard-won successes.” Ryerson News
