The Ford Family Takes to YouTube For 'Ford Nation'
...they're baaaaaaaack.

The Ford follies have been intense. They’ve inspired us to laugh, cry, look on incredulously, get fed up, and occasionally come back to where we started.

But, as you may have expected, they’re not going to end any time soon. Last night on Newstalk 1010, Councillor Doug Ford revealed that the Ford family haw been approached to launch a reality show by “everyone from Oprah to Dr. Phil…You name the person, we’ve got calls from them. There’s a massive market in the U.S.” (We know this all too well.) While the Fords haven’t decided how their reality show options are going to work out yet, they have decided to take their media talents to YouTube for a show called “Ford Nation,” set to premiere “before Christmas.”

Unlike their Newstalk 1010 and Sun TV programs, this show will be entirely funded by the Ford Family.

Like it or not, Toronto, the Fords are going to be a big part of our media landscape for the foreseeable future.
