CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/13 -- Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

After more than a decade forecasting fronts, Calgary's Todd Gallant is prognosticating his last day on conventional television. Todd has been a recognizable face in Alberta for nearly a decade, with Weather Anchor roles at both Global Television and most recently CTV Calgary. As of July 1st, he is stepping away from the weather wall to take a lead role at BizBOXTV, an online video/TV advertising agency, headquartered in Calgary.

"I have been blessed with a wonderful career in conventional, but the time has come to help pioneer a 'relative' newcomer to the industry." Todd will step into the role of CFO & President of Digital Advancement at BizBOXTV, working alongside his wife, BizBOXTV CEO Lisa Ostrikoff.

"It's a thrilling time for BizBOXTV, and the perfect time to move forward with the minds initially involved in its conception. The future is bright for BizBOXTV and our clients, and I am excited to have Todd working alongside me during this high growth phase," says Ostrikoff.

"BizBOXTV has, since its launch, experienced a steady growth of businesses ready to take the leap into online video advertising. We're still in the early days of where all of this is going, and I am thrilled to be part of a team that's pushing the envelope and offering business owners something not seen in this Canadian market before," says Gallant.
