Vancouver BC - Lagoon City ON June 30, 2016 - Howard Christensen, Publisher of Broadcast Dialogue - Canada's
broadcast industry publication of record - announced today that Broadcast Dialogue will, in fact, resume
publishing on July 21, 2016 under new stewardship. Vancouver-based Momentum Media Marketing, Inc. will

farewell issue.

"The backgrounds of the Momentum Marketing people are in line with Ingrid's and my desire to see experienced
broadcasters continue the qualities readers and advertisers expect of Broadcast Dialogue," said Howard
Christensen, Publisher of Broadcast Dialogue.

"Howard and Ingrid Christensen are beloved in the Canadian broadcast industry," said Shawn Smith, President and
Founder of Momentum. "As their final edition approached, I know that both Howard and Ingrid were genuinely
overwhelmed by the accolades and recognition, as well as the personal notes of congratulations they received.
Broadcast Dialogue has always nurtured a sense of community and connectedness among us all, no matter where
the industry took us across the country. Broadcasters have not taken them for granted."

Howard Christensen has graciously agreed to serve as Editor Emeritus of Broadcast Dialogue as part of the
acquisition plan, in order to ensure a smooth transition and provide counsel and expertise to the Momentum team.
Momentum Founder and CEO Shawn Smith will serve as Publisher of Broadcast Dialogue. "We could not imagine an
industry without Broadcast Dialogue," continued Shawn Smith. "Although we have lofty standards to meet, our
team is deeply gratified that Howard and Ingrid agree and have blessed our plan to move Broadcast Dialogue
forward. We aspire to honour the passion, integrity, and legacy of all they have built."

Industry veteran and Journalist, Lisa Blackburn, has joined the Momentum team and will serve as Editor of
Broadcast Dialogue. Based in Halifax, Lisa is a graduate of University of Kings College and holds a degree in
Journalism, Radio and Television. Lisa's immense experience includes longtime engagements as morning show
co-host/reporter with Newcap and Rogers radio, Television host with Global Maritimes, as well as web editor and
writer with CBC Halifax.

"Broadcast Dialogue has been required reading my entire career," Lisa Blackburn said. "The opportunity to help
shape how our industry stories are told during this exciting time of change is humbling."

Broadcast Dialogue will return on July 21, 2016 and will retain its tried-and-true content format. Additional
editorial features and unique advertising extensions are expected to be in place for September.

"In addition to content creation, Momentum has a successful track record of providing unique and measurable
marketing initiatives for broadcasters and industry suppliers," said Shawn Smith. "We look forward to providing
next-level marketing opportunities to all our industry partners. We will also leverage the latest digital platforms
to expand the "dialogue" that Howard and Ingrid have begun and fostered with Broadcast Dialogue."
