Board pushed at gay TV channel
Larry Buhl, GAY.COM/PlanetOut Network
Thursday 9 March, 2006 11:26 |
From uk.gay.com

After gay TV stations folded in the UK and other European countries, the problems for American channel Q Television Network continue to grow.

Less than a month after laying off most of its staff, the financially troubled QTN, one of three television networks in the United States with primarily lesbian and gay content, has ousted its top management in hope of pulling itself back into the black.

The company reported on Tuesday that investor Lloyd Fan, who was recently brought in as president, would replace company founder Frank Olsen as chairman and CEO of QTN and parent Triangle Multi-Media. In addition, Fan has replaced the board and top management, including Olsen and other top executives.

"Effective today, all Triangle Multi-Media Limited and QTN officers and board of directors have resigned their positions and have relinquished all responsibilities and affiliations," said a prepared statement from Q. "Details of the new management infrastructure, with an emphasis on both television and finance industry, will be forthcoming."

QTN is available to 3 million cable subscribers in several cities, but is still not available in many major markets.

The company came under fire last month for laying off the majority of its staff while owing them a month's pay, leading to speculation that the company would go under. At that time, a spokesman for the network told GAY.com that Q would stay afloat and that the new management structure would ultimately succeed.

"I am committed to building an exceptionally strong, experienced management team, fortifying QTN's business partnerships and strengthening the network's commitment to providing high-quality, engaging television programming focused on the GLBT community," Fan said in a prepared statement.

Lloyd Fan runs Best Prop Holding Group and has a long career in corporate finance, manufacturing, international trade and patenting throughout Asia, according to a company press release. However, he has no experience in television or entertainment.

QTN executives refused to comment for this story.

However, laid-off employees -- who have still not been paid for the month of January -- have a lot to say.

Vanessa Mayer, a graphics generator who was laid off February 1st, lays the blame for the company's hard times on Olsen's management skills. "The only reason the changes are happening is that Q needed money and nobody would give them money with Frank (Olsen) as the head of the company," she told GAY.com.

"It's funny that they say Q's new emphasis will be on television and finance," Mayer said. "They're a television network. What was their emphasis before?"

Jane Bloom, a production coordinator, told GAY.com that even though they are waiting to be paid for the entire month of January, she and most of the former staffers have moved on.

"I think it's not a question of getting hired back, but a matter of when we get the money they owe us," she said. Bloom ended up taking a survival job at a health club while looking for television production work.

Less than 10 out of more than 100 laid-off staffers have been asked back to the network, and only as independent contractors at less than their previous wages.

Both Mayer and Bloom say the consensus among the still-close staffers is that nothing Q Television could do at this point would undo the damage to its reputation.

"Nobody with any TV experience is going anywhere near Q to look for a job," Mayer said. Bloom concurred: "Almost everyone I've interviewed with say they heard about what happened at Q and that it's very screwed up."

This two statements pretty much hits the nail on the head...

"The only reason the changes are happening is that Q needed money and nobody would give them money with Frank (Olsen) as the head of the company," she told GAY.com.

"It's funny that they say Q's new emphasis will be on television and finance," Mayer said. "They're a television network. What was their emphasis before?"

Yeah, they didn't even mention all the fraudulent news releases issued by Frank and Co.

Surely there's a criminal case in there somewhere.

I would rather have somebody with deep pockets, or business/financial knowledge running TMM/QTN. They can always hire the "right" people to run the network, rather than to have to have Frankie the Fraudster at the helm. We saw how far it got us. Frankie the Fraud may have had the GLBT "wet dream" (his words), but he obviously did not have what it takes to run a business. I personally think he squandered all of the money because of poor business decisions, including elaborate parties, parades, sponsorships and lawsuits. Furthermore, I never did believe the story about the investor dying, that sounded too fishy. Kinda, like, the dog at my homework or the dog at the audit.

I suppose the "at least it isn't Frank" argument is my only ray of hope right now. I'm down 93.75%!

well, here's my effort to mr fan...let you know of any response....lol


Mr. Fan:

i speak for myself only, but be assured that there are many with these thoughts.
as long time investors/shareholders, we are understandably interested and concerned about the status and direction of this enterprise.

first, welcome to our nightmare. i mean that with the most positive of intentions. there are many questions, and i am sure you will be addressing them with the utmost haste. for now, know that there are long-suffering shareholders glad to see your arrival, and eager for your success.

i am sure that for you to have gotten involved with this entity (Triangle Multimedia and it's various holdings), you would have to know the corporate and financial structure of this entity. else you wouldn't know what you are getting for YOUR investment in this entity, let alone where you are starting from.

the folks that have funded this public entity, the shareholders, are entitled to know that information. on behalf of all the shareholders, i would request that you release to us that known information.

there are many directions all of this can go. we will be awaiting your thoughts and plans for the future.

i am a long-time investor/shareholder and wish you the best of luck and great success. thank you for your time and hopeful response. contact me anytime.


sincerely,

yes but a good business man knows to hire the right people for the job, AND let them look after it.


Frank hired the right people but would not allow them to do what they do best.

Frank had his fingers into too much that he really should have let his tallent do.

that was his big failure.

Now I do have one question and it is, has anyone checked on the A/S lately to see if they have increased or decreased? I am now sitting on the sidelines awaiting FANtastic news. [Smile] I hadn't seen that one so I thought I would use it.

Actually I trust your comments on this , so no need to check. In one way I am a little disappointed that it did not decrease but I guess anything can happen now that Frank has been shipped off to Gilligan's Island.

Thanks

A PR announcing a buyback or reduction of the AS, OS, or an invitation to a steak dinner won't mean didly. imo [Big Grin]

There is way too much negative news out there now that would stop any new investor from investing at this point.

Maybe Fan will do one of two things. Along with the usual PR'd blah blah blah, he'll either announce to have an audit ready in 30-60 days...or he'll announce the r/s and start from scratch.

But thats just my rookie thought. [Big Grin]

its already cleaned up lol Frank is gone. lol

that is a load of cleansing in itself.

but he is going to have to settle out the debts of the workers that where layed off, to gain any type of credibility in the industry. If he doesnt do that, then he might as well pull the plug right now.


now im off to bed

nighty night.

a letter to richard. i attached my fan letter for him to forward in case other efforts fail.

good luck all...


richard--

well, thought i would send this off to you to see if you could forward this to our new fearless leader. as far as i know, you are still our 'IR' guy right?

speaking of which, when can we expect the paperwork to be filed with the state of Washington installing Fan, and removing Olsen?

then there are the other questions...audit, share structure, gay games, etc.
soon?

ok. will you please forward this along? i'll add as attachment fan1.
again, thanks for your time and efforts.


sincerely,
