Moses Znaimer is an internationally renowned Canadian broadcaster and media pioneer, founder of some 20 popular Canadian television channels and stations, including Citytv and MuchMusic. Marketing Magazine named Moses one of the Top 10 Canadian Media Moguls Of The Past 100 Years. Currently, he is the Founder and CEO of ZoomerMedia.
His career in broadcasting began when he joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. He became well known for his work as host.
