silverman helps cancelled

Silverman Helps No More

In a memo distributed to staff of Citytv (see below), it's been announced that the award-winning and long-running Citytv segment "Silverman Helps" has been cancelled, effective immediately.

No more "Watch it, buddy," and no more helping the little people who've been screwed over.

Today we informed the group that works in "Silverman Helps" that this segment of the news will discontinue in its current format. For nearly two decades, Peter Silverman and Terry O'Keefe's unit have brought closure to many viewer complaints. We feel however that the marketplace for investigative journalism is evolving and CityNews will reformat the consumer beat in the fall. Effective immediately, the "Silverman Helps" stories will be discontinued. We thank Peter, Terry and Cristina for their contribution to the newscast.

Silverman was bit of a YouTube star in February of last year when he brought out his "inner Chuck Norris" during a violent encounter with a spastic business owner .
