Technology innovation is having a massive impact on the media sector. Many times, this innovation is undermining the business plans of traditional media companies and putting them at risk of failure.

Not so at Great River Media, which has tradition of adopting technology and embracing innovation long before its competitors.

The most recently example if this is Techopia Live.

Techopia is a spinoff brand from the Ottawa Business Journal. It uses digital, social and video to connect with a new generation of leaders from the local technology sector.

Techopia Live is a twice weekly live broadcast on Facebook, where local CEOs and business leaders from Ottawa's technology sector are interviewed by host Carlo Lombard. Typically, interviews range from 10-15 minutes and explore the news of the day.

Many of the episodes are garnering 1,000 views or more and Techopia Live is well on its way as becoming the city's most important business broadcast.

Plans are underway the launch more broadcasts in other sectors, such as commercial real estate.
