This page, password protected up until March 27, 2008, contains a record of the networking research produced in 2004 by Remy Chevalier & Summer Rayne Oakes in support of a green television channel called Tomorrow's Planet which never launched. The information was then shared with the TreeHugger team to benefit the growth of TreeHugger TV, sold to Discovery Communications in 2007. Discovery launched Planet Green in 2008. Summer Rayne Oakes now sits on Planet Green's board of advisors. Much of this contact information is outdated, but provides a historical record of efforts gone into the creation of a mainstream all green 24/7 television channel.

Covered by Amy Schein

MTV Networks On Campus (doing business as mtvU) knows what the college kids
really do with their time -- watch TV. A unit of MTV Networks, mtvU
broadcasts 24-hour TV content to some 6 million students at more than 700
campuses; its programming is aired where the 18-to-24 crowd congregates --
dining areas, fitness centers, student lounges, and dorm rooms. mtvU also
operates a Web site devoted to college-aged students at The
network, formally CTN: College Television Network, was purchased by MTV's
parent Viacom in 2002 for $15 million. Upon the acquisition, the troubled
CTN had discontinued its other businesses, which included full-service
marketing agency iD8 and college publication Link Magazine. or call her at 212-846-5524 for ad sales

ZOOZOOOM :: 249 West 29th Street, NY, NY, 10001 :: 212.631.0383

DAVID MCINTYRE, Publisher ::
I am passionate about change. Moving from Scotland to London I played drums
in a number of 80's bands including one with 'Boy' George
O'Dowd. In the pubs and clubs I discovered a world where fashion and music
were inseparable, fused together in a personal expression of
lifestyle as social commentary. During this time I discovered photography
and took to photographing the people around me. George again,
Heaven 17, Simple Minds and Adam Ant. As my career grew I was fortunate
enough to meet many innovative voices from the worlds of music
and fashion, photographing artists like U2, Bjork and Biggie Smalls or
shooting fashion for The Face, Spin, Rolling Stone, L'Officiel and Marie
Claire. But it was with the founding of ZOOZOOM that I returned to my roots
with a magazine that looks for connections between apparently
disparate elements within popular culture, fashion as lifestyle as social
commentary and of course doing it beautifully.
KELLEY QUAN, Editor in Chief ::
I am passionate about beauty in art and art in beauty. When I am working,
some people ask straight away "Are you a painter?". I always wonder
how it is they know, when I have spent most of my adult life painting only
faces. Admittedly, some of the most amazing faces in the world, but
faces nonetheless. I guess I come from a strong fine arts background and as
fate would have it, when the world of makeup artistry found me,
it became an immediate obsession. During the course of my career, I have had
the opportunity to work on some of the world's most beautiful
women in the industry for magazines and advertisements like Vogue, Marie
Claire, Glamour, Vanity Fair, L'Oreal and Clinique. I have also had
the luxury to collaborate with many influencial photography crews and it is
this experience that I bring to ZOOZOOM.
SCOTT SCHUMAN, VP Sales and Marketing ::
I am passionate about fashion. Like Garrison Keillor's Lake Woebegone I grew
up a in a small Midwestern town dreaming of the glamorous
life in New York City. Since moving to New York I've been lucky to work with
some of the worlds' most important names in fashion: Valentino,
Michael Kors, Carmelo Pomodoro. I've also had a very influential role in
discovering some of New York's current crop of young designer stars
such as Peter Som, James Coviello, and Y & Kie. With Zoozoom I will take the
reader deeper into the inspiration, craft, and business of fashion.
MIKE HARTLEY, VP Design and Technology ::
While studying engineering and economics at university I discovered I was a
creative trapped in an engineer's body. Fortunately, before I had to
choose between the two, the Internet was invented. This gave me the
opportunity to satisfy my passion for design and technology whist wearing
only one hat. Thank you Tim Berners-Lee.

CHUM 'in discussions' with Turner Media to re-launch MuchMusic in U.S.
TORONTO (CP) - Broadcaster CHUM Ltd. says it is "in discussions" with an American group about a potential relaunch of its MuchMusic station in the United States.
CHUM was forced to reveal that talks have been held with Turner Media Group after a Tuesday report by New York-based media critic Jack Myers on a potential joint venture between CHUM and Turner on the all-music station. CHUM said Myers reported "prematurely" on the potential alliance.
"While CHUM and Turner have been in discussions, no agreement has been entered into between the parties," the Canadian media giant said in a brief statement late Tuesday afternoon.
CHUM, which owns 29 radio stations, eight TV stations and 17 specialty TV channels such as MuchMusic, started up MuchMusic USA - an American version of its all-music Canadian channel - in 1994 in partnership with Rainbow Media Holdings Inc.
CHUM sold its 50 per cent interest in the channel to Rainbow in March 2000, and entered into a separate agreement that allowed Rainbow to continue using the MuchMusic trademarks and programming. That agreement expired last May.
Last April, David Kines, vice-president and general manager of MuchMusic and sister station MuchMoreMusic, said CHUM would search for U.S. outlets that could air CHUM programming.

Turner Media Group is a low profile company that has no relation to Time Warner's Turner Broadcasting, but generates more than $100 million in annual ad sales revenues. Led by entrepreneur Gary Turner, TMG is the sales representation arm for all Dish Network inventory, 48 HITS networks (Headend in The Sky), and its own eclectic group of satellite and cable delivered networks: The Men's Channel, Beauty & Fashion, Healthy Living, iShop TV, Catalog TV, Auction TV, and Mall TV. Turner's largest network, Healthy Living, is distributed to an estimated 38 million homes.
Turner's model is designed to sell advertisers a traditional campaign utilizing the inventory on Dish Network (EchoStar) and HITS to drive viewers to targeted long form "branded content and commerce opportunities" on one of the company's niche networks. Turner has access to two-minutes of traditional commercial time on each Dish Network commercial channel - the same inventory used by cable systems for their locally aired spots. Major clients include Dell Computers, Sharper Image, and Jeep. Turner is also actively developing transactional capabilities on its networks in association with OpenTV, ACTV, Liberate, and Navic.
"Dish has five million interactive subscribers," Turner explained to Jack Myers Entertainment Report in an exclusive interview. "We are building interaction into all our networks to offer their subscribers something different. A revenue sharing relationship helps amortize their costs of ITV platforms, both justifying their investments and adding value to subscriber packages." "If viewers want more information it's available through video-on-demand or an interactive interface, and at any time they can make purchases," Turner adds. Through its Catalog TV, Mall TV, iShop TV, and Auction TV, Turner offers marketers opportunities for direct-toconsumer sales, and features estate sales, close-out sales, and other opportunistic consumer purchase vehicles. Last year, Turner hired former Lagadere/Hachette ITV executive Ben Tatta to develop interactive content
relationships and he is working with several magazine publishers to develop targeted programming content.
In April, Turner intends to emerge from several years of "flying under the radar screen," when the company launches two new networks to comple ment its existing services. The launch of Canada's MuchMusic as a U.S. music channel is, in reality, a re-launch. MuchMusic was marketed for several years by Cablevision's Rainbow Programming, until Rainbow dropped its relationship with Canada's CHUM Group and switched its channel identity to Fuse. Turner will launch MuchMusic as a joint venture with CHUM, and will incorporate original Canadian content with a significant percentage of original U.S. content. According to Turner, the network will rely on interactive elements, and will continue to target the 18 to 34 year old audience, with dual emphasis on 18 to 49 year olds. In Canada, MuchMusic has more similarities to VH1 than to MTV. CHUM has been a leader in engaging viewers through interactive program elements, and the addition of MuchMusic assures Turner a wellknown brand for future discussions with distributors and advertisers. MuchMusic will feature fan club support content, downloadable music videos, an interactive jukebox service, and direct access to concert tickets.
'Tomorrow's Planet'
Environmental Channel Set for Launch
In addition to its planned launch of MuchMusic, Turner will also launch "Tomorrow's Planet," a 24-hour public interest channel utilizing leased access channel capacity on local cable systems and satellite services. "There is tremendous interest in the environment, as witnessed by the success of programming on Discovery, National Geographic, Weather Channel and other networks," Turner advised. But there is no source for active viewer involvement in environmental issues, and current programming does not help distributors fulfill their public interest obligations or generate incremental revenues." Turner will offer special sponsorships to advertisers on Tomorrow's Planet. Turner is also scheduling the launch of a new dedicated high definition programming channel called HDX later this year.
Turner's business originated nearly twenty years ago with syndicated sporting events such as Championship Kick Boxing, Ultra Marathon, and Indy Class Auto Racing. Most of the company's programming aired on ESPN and Prime Ticket Sports. "The economic model changed from our being paid to barter," Turner advises. "So we had to get involved in ad sales, and depended primarily on direct response. Then the networks wanted us to buy the airtime, so we went directly to the cable operators to assure we could control our own destiny. We would buy blocks of time from the operators, and then eventually we began negotiating for channels. Because we emphasize interactive content, we offer operators a differentiated product that helps them sell digital packages."
"Right now," says Turner, "we are baking our channels, building in interactivity and commerce transactions, and targeting niche audiences that have strong audience appeal and positive value for advertisers. All our networks allow us to create programming that offers commerce opportunities." Turner Media Group has its headquarters in Denver with offices in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York.
