Livia Pravato-Fuchs, President & CEO of MJSC
Livia’s career in media began when she attended Humber College’s Radio Broadcasting Program and it was there, that she met and befriended Corey Fuchs, a fellow student.
After completing college in 1991, Livia got into doing voice-over work (her 1st love). Wanting to expand her experience in voice-overs, she began volunteering as a puppeteer with a non-profit agency, The Concerned Kids. They were so impressed with her innate talent, they offered her a full-time job as the Office Coordinator / Operations Manager & Puppeteer Trainer, where she remained for ten years.
When that job ended, it was time to find greater opportunities and security, so she began working for the Children’s Aid Society of Toronto (CAST) and enjoyed, an eight-year tenure as an Administrative Assistant. Although, this job gave her great security, it wasn’t giving her what she really wanted out of life, so she started looking towards her first love, Radio, and she found this website: https://www.mediajobsearchcanada.com (MJSC).
To her surprise, it was headed by her old friend, Corey Fuchs and she quickly sent him a message. Remembering back in college, that he wanted to create a website to help people find jobs in the media and other fields. She was so happy to see that he actually did what he intended to do!
Finding that they shared common goals, they ended up marrying in 2006. However, six years later, in 2012, Corey was unfortunately diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), and Livia had to switch gears again, leaving her job and becoming a full-time caregiver to Corey. As she was already helping Corey with the business, she was appointed Vice President of MJSC.
Later, in 2016, Corey succumbed to complications of ALS, leaving Livia to pick up the pieces. Although, she wasn’t sure about taking on the responsibility of running a business, she found it both engaging and fun to be running her own business and became the Owner and President of MJSC!
Livia is excited at the prospect of building on Corey’s success by expanding MJSC’s reach, services and product. She has embraced the opportunity built on Corey’s legacy, providing a place where job seekers can find job opportunities, while giving employers a trusted, centralized portal to source talent for vacant positions.
Today, Livia is proud to be running her own business and is also an active member of various community theatre groups, a voice-over artist and puppeteer.
When that creative bug bites, it bites hard!
Corey Fuchs, Fmr. President & CEO of MJSC
Corey Fuchs was the Founder, Creator, Developer and & former President of Media Job Search Canada: Canada’s premier Internet Job Board, providing creative professionals with the first-ever capacity to search country-wide, for media-specific positions. www.mjsc.ca.
Corey got his start on the creative side of broadcast television during his first semester at Humber College’s Radio Broadcasting Program. Volunteering at CFMT TV, (now Omni 1/2 in Toronto) he fulfilled Writer/Producer assignments for the entire three-year program. Upon graduating, he was offered a full-time role in the Commercial Production Department, as a Promotions Writer/Producer -- where he remained for five years.
In 1995 he took the opportunity to move north, to work with Thunder Bay Television (TBT). After three years as the Promotions Coordinator for two CBC and CTV affiliate stations, the skills and knowledge he gained at CFMT lead him to successfully garner a CanPro Award, for a News Promotion he created for TBT’s Northwest Newsweek program.
In early 1998, Corey decided to return to Toronto, only to find that it was extremely hard to land another job in Television! Searching the Internet at that time, Corey came to see that despite the fact that there were several American media job boards, no websites could be found to be servicing the Canadian media industry. He decided to create a new website that would list all Television and Radio stations in Canada. This new site was designed to help people search for jobs in Canadian Media, straight across Canada!
Having originally thought of the idea to build a website back in 1989, Media Job Search Canada.com was ultimately launched on April 23, 1999. The next two years’ saw the website expand to include web links to Advertising & Marketing companies, Newspapers, Magazines, and Film & Video Companies. IT and Web companies were added a year later.
In May 2000, CKPG-TV’s Prince George station manager contacted MJSC about posting a Job Ad on www.mjsc.ca. Since the website was only designed to list web links, it had to be re-designed. 48 hours later the website was live, allowing companies to post Job Ads on its website. Media Job Search Canada’s first official paid Job Ad was posted May 26, 2000, by CKPG-TV.
Since then, Media Job Search Canada’s rich history shows it has posted over 100K+ Job Ads, and has helped 3000+ companies across Canada to fill media-related positions.
Our friend and colleague, Corey Fuchs, was a futurist, an early adopter of all things technological, an entrepreneur, and a born leader. More than that, he was a humanist who used his own experience to develop one of Canada’s strongest portals and most recognizable brands, providing critical employment information and opportunities to thousands of Canadians.
Corey, we salute you!
