The wagering has begun: Globe in for a grand

We’re a little more than two weeks away from the big show. Journos from some of this country’s biggest news outlets will be going head to head for rock-pop glory at the 10th annual Newzapalooza battle of the bands, which to date has raised nearly $70,000 for the Children’s Aid Foundation. But the Opera house stage isn’t the only battlefield in this competition. Today we launch the Publisher’s Challenge. Hey Toronto Star? You listening Toronto Sun? I’m looking at you National Post. And you Canadian Press. Think your band can win? Time to pony up. The Globe and Mail’s already donated $1000 to get the ball rolling. Remember: it’s for the kids.
