Over 40 years ago, CTVAA's founders, John Kerr and Bill Shagawat started selling ads on Ranger's Hockey games on the Madison Square Garden Network. Very few people had cable in their homes back then and as far as advertisers were concerned, newspapers were the only viable medium.

A lot has changed in 42 years...
