See a young Moses Znaimer in a vintage clip from the afternoon show Take 30 with Adrienne Clarkson and Paul Soles. From YouTube.
In 2002, he retired from television, but in 2008 launched Zoomer magazine, aimed at adults over 50. In 2009, he acquired Vision TV, a collection of multicultural and religious channels.
In other areas, he appeared in the films Atlantic City, The Best Revenge, Being Julia, and promoted the play Tamara, (describes as a new king of theatrical presentation, "a story you follow from room to room") and the attraction Tour of the Universe. In 1992 he was part of a group that failed to obtain a licence for a fifth British TV channel. In 1995, he wrote and produced TVTV: The Television Revolution, a 3-hour program devoted to the impact of television on the lives of Canadians which he insisted "represents the triumph of television over print: print created illiteracy, television is democratic. Everyone gets it." Internationally, he licensed Mucha Music in Spain and Argentina, JYRKI in Finland and CITY-tv in Barcelona and Bologna.
Znaimer was given the Queen's Jubilee Medal in 2002, the GOVERNOR GENERAL'S PREFORMING ARTS AWARD for lifetime artistic achievement in 2005 and the ORDER OF CANADA in 2006. His collection of antique television sets was donated to the Cinématèque québécoise in 2006.
