CBSC announces new director of policy

Articles in related categories
OTTAWA � The Canadian Broadcast Standards Council has announced the appointment of Teisha Gaylard as its new director of policy.

Gaylard has recently completed her Masters of Arts in Communication and Culture, with a specialization in Politics and Policy, from York University, where she received a Canada Graduate Scholarship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and the Bell Globemedia Scholarship for leading edge Canadian media research.

In partial fulfilment of her degree requirements, she prepared a major research paper entitled "Cultural Policy and the 'Diginets:' An Analysis of the Policy Framework for Canadian Digital Pay and Specialty Television Services." Before pursuing her Master's degree, Gaylard had served for two years as broadcast aAnalyst at the CBSC. She graduated with a B.A. (Highest Honours) from the Mass Communications Department at Carleton University.

"In her position as director of policy, and with her combination of previous CBSC experience and a strong background in cultural policy, Teisha will play an important role in directing and communicating CBSC policy initiatives," said CBSC national chair Ron Cohen. Through its decisions, which respond to issues raised by the public about broadcast content, the council has played a significant role in the definition of content policy in Canada. The council has also been extremely active in getting its message out to Canada's great multicultural diversity, providing information about private broadcaster codes and the self-regulatory process in more than 30 languages both in print and on its web site.
