Launched in January 2001, The GATE is owned and operated by W. Andrew Powell with contributions from a variety of writers, including author Christopher Heard.
Founded in 2000 by W. Andrew Powell, The GATE covered only music until 2001 when the website expanded to cover movies, followed by television, and video games by late in 2002.
Between 2002 and 2004 The GATE was also produced as a small zine that was available in bars and restaurants in downtown Toronto.
For several years, The GATE's film reviews by Powell were syndicated to publications across Canada, including Lighthouse Publishing in Nova Scotia, CFB Esquimalt Lookout newspaper in British Columbia, and The Squamish Chief in Alberta.
Since 2001, Powell has represented The GATE as a guest entertainment expert on U8TV's Shower Hour, Much Music's Ed's Big Wham Bam, AM640's travel radio program Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Hamilton's CHAM 820 Nabuurs and Friends, and in Eye Weekly's Annual Cross-Canada Music Critics Poll.
Notably in 2011, Canadian newspaper advertising for the opening weekend of the Walt Disney Pictures release Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides featured a quote from Powell, "Pirates is back and it's better than ever!"
