Night for Rights Sponsor
Corus recognizes and appreciates the work that JHR does in Canada as well as in the rest of the world by training journalists to tell important human rights stories.
Head of news and local broadcasting for Corus Entertainment, Troy Reeb says ‘As a small and nimble organization with connections worldwide, JHR punches significantly above its weight. Night for Rights will showcase its incredible success in helping to foster independent journalism to support democracy and human rights.’ Global News is a longtime partner with JHR, and has helped send veteran Global News journalists to serve as volunteer trainers in Africa and the Middle East.
Corus is a driving force in the media industry with a diverse portfolio of strong brands that entertain and inform audiences through great storytelling and compelling content, reaching millions of people around the world every day. In particular, Corus, through Global News has been and continues to be a proud supporter of JHR’s Indigenous Reporters Program, offering Indigenous journalists the opportunity to intern at Global News offices across Canada.
Corus is committed to being good corporate citizens and uses the power of its broadcasting assets as a megaphone to support important causes on a local and national level. Corus Radio embraces philanthropy and lends a voice to many worthwhile community initiatives through radiothons, events and public service announcements.
To date, through our philanthropic efforts, Corus has contributed over $227 million through fundraising drives, air-time support and cash contributions to the communities we serve.
