Shark Tank’s Kevin O’Leary Announces Presidential Run CNN Fort Lauderdale Satellite Uplink Studio

Shark Tank O'Leary Still #1 copy

Our Fort Lauderdale satellite uplink studio proudly welcomed Shark Tank’s Kevin O’Leary to our studio set! O’Leary recently announced and confirmed on CNN’s Don Lemon’s show his intention to run in Canada’s next presidential election. He would be running as the leader for Canada’s conservative party.

He made a direct challenge to current Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during the interview at our studio. O’Leary believes his native Canada is heading in the wrong direction economically and that the country needs a business minded leader to bring it back to prosperity.

Don Lemon focused on the parallels of both O’Leary and Donald Trump being successful businessman, with Trump inaugurated as our nation’s 45th president. While O’Leary acknowledged that both he and Trump are successful businessmen and reality television celebrities, he differentiated himself by speaking about his immigrant roots. O’Leary, a Canadian immigrant who is half Lebanese and half Irish, seemed to dismiss Trump’s idea of national border walls (as Trump has proposed between the United States and Mexico) and instead described Canada as an “inclusive” country, very reliant on it’s immigrant population and workforce. O’Leary says counties globally want business minded folks who have “executional experience” to run their countries and are not drawn to the traditional politicians of the past.

Holyfield Ali's Death Still FSS blog copy

Our South Florida satellite, uplink broadcast studio covered the death of iconic, legendary boxing heavyweight champion, Muhammad Ali. We were honored to welcome another former heavyweight champion and close friend of Ali’s, Evander Holyfield, to our studio in downtown Fort Lauderdale!

Evander spent several days at our studio, as all the network news stations requested him to be live on the set during what turned out to be a week long tribute to Muhammad Ali.  Included in this blog post, is the video clip from our studio’s remote liveshot with Evander on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews.  It was honor meeting and getting to know Evander Holyfield as he shared some of his personal stories of growing up, his family and also gave us insight into his professional career as one of the greatest boxers of all time!

Muhammad Ali passed away at the age of 74, after a lengthy 32 year battle with Parkinson’s Disease.  Ali is considered by many as the greatest boxing champion of all time. He is also widely regarded as one of the most influential and prominent celebrated sports figures and celebrities in history.

Although Ali will be remembered as arguably the “greatest” boxing champion of all time, he also was a very involved and active in the arena of politics and religion. He was an anti-establishment man who refused to serve in the Vietnam War because of his strong religious and political beliefs. Ali, converted to Islam during his younger years as a heavyweight boxing champion. Even before hsi passing, with his health in a declining spiral, he did not shy away form voicing his political opinions and opposition to issues and laws he strongly opposed. He criticized then candidate Trump, when the President proposed a ban on Muslims entering the United States. Ai focused on Islam being a peaceful religion, and was very critical of those who used the religion to promote their own agendas.

LIVE FROM FSS 04-27-17 Tim Canova South Florida Video Production Studio Facebook Live

LIVE FROM FSS 04-27-17 Tim Blog Still

FSS welcomed Tim Canova, a university law professor and activist, who took the political world by storm last year when he announced his candidacy to run for a House seat in Congress!

A progressive Democrat with a passion for supporting and preserving American jobs from moving overseas, reforming a broken financial campaign system, and saving the environment (among other issues), Canova, sought to shake up the status quo of politics. He set his sights high, challenging the incumbent Congresswoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who also happened to be the Chairperson of the Democratic Party. No easy task, considering his opponent’s status as the DNC Chair, who happened to have more available resources in her campaign chest and the backing of the party’s establishment, including Secretary Clinton, VP Joe Biden and even the POTUS himself!

Canova, a relative newcomer to the political scene, made it his mission to speak out against corporate greed and to fight for the issues he strongly believed in…all without accepting any PAC money. Rather, his campaign accepted only small donations from individuals and raised more than 200,000 individual contributions averaging about $22/donation. This was a recording breaking amount of contributions in congressional campaign history!

“Canova used the New Deal slogan “Progress For All” to contrast his progressive agenda to the trickle down approach of corporate-dominated Democrats and Republicans.” Progress For All is a grassroots organization that focuses on reforming social security, advocates “fair” living wages for American workers, a cleaner environment, affordable education and healthcare among a host of other issues.
