At the CBC

  • The public broadcaster has released its three-year strategic plan, which includes a lot of buzzwords but no specifics. Its priorities are:
    • Customized digital services
    • Engaging with young audiences (children’s programming)
    • Prioritizing local connections (local and regional content)
    • Reflecting contemporary Canada (diversity)
    • Taking Canada to the world (exporting content)
  • The Globe and Mail has a story bout casual and temporary employees at the CBC. The union has been trying for years to improve the situation, but many people at the broadcaster are still in a situation where they don’t know if they’re working until the day of, or they’ve been working for months or even years without any permanency.

    Any news , or perhaps I missed it,on the renewal of CFQR AM600?
    And have you heard any news on their supposed News Talk programming?
    Or have they got something else up their sleeves?

    Slipping under the radar:

    Bell Media announcing the rebrand of nearly all its country radio stations, including CKLC Kingston 98.9 The Drive to “Pure Country”. It will retain local mornings and drive but will syndicate the rest of the schedule.

    It’s the first time since The Team that private commercial radio has gone national, and will possibly indicate the future direction of Bell’s other national music brand, Virgin.

    Interesting times and taking a leaf out of us Brits with our own “Heart” and “Capital FM” radio brands.
