Ceremonial street name designation honours Moses Znaimer
Mayor David Miller and Councillor Adam Vaughan (Ward 20 Trinity-Spadina) today unveiled a ceremonial street name designation to honour Moses Znaimer, a producer, director and entrepreneur who revolutionized the world of broadcasting.

“Moses Znaimer has transformed the media in Toronto and around the world,” said Mayor David Miller. “Throughout his career, his unique style, vision and energy has helped to create a host of vibrant entertainment programs and television stations that have made Toronto a more exciting and liveable city.”

Znaimer, who began his career with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, was the co-founder and former head of City TV, the first independent television station in Toronto. Znaimer founded a number of television channels and programs including Much Music, CablePulse 24, Star!, Bravo!, Space and the Fashion Television Channel.

Znaimer is currently head of classical radio station CFMZ and popular music station CFZM. In 2006, Znaimer was made a member of the Order of Ontario. He has also been recognized by the Canadian Association of Broadcasters and is a recipient of the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award.

A ceremonial street designation is a special recognition of the work or efforts of an individual or group. However, this designation does not change the legal addresses of properties located on that particular section of the street.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years, Toronto has won numerous awards for quality, innovation and efficiency in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
