CBC Unveils Radio Changes
January 18, 2007 at 5:46 AM (PT)
The CBC's radio revamp has been officially announced, with details including the addition of a nightly 6-8p jazz show on CBC RADIO TWO hosted by KATIE MALLOCH in MONTREAL on weeknights and by TIM TAMASHIRO from CALGARY on weekends. That's followed by an 8-10p show with live music hosted on weeknights by TORONTO-based RADIO ONE afternoon host MATT GALLOWAY, who will also continue on RADIO ONE.
RADIO TWO will also add a nightly contemporary music show with LAURIE BROWN for 10p-1a and an overnight eclectic music show with MONTREAL-based DANIELLE CHARBONNEAU.
Back at RADIO ONE, the network is cancelling afternoon show "FREESTYLE" (replaced by a TORONTO-based show hosted by JIAN GHOMESHI), "GLOBAL VILLAGE," and "BRAVE NEW WAVES" as the network decreases music programming in favor of more talk. GHOMESHI's show will also repeat in an edited version on weekday evenings, replacing "THE ARTS TONIGHT."
Elements of "GLOBAL VILLAGE" will be incorporated into RADIO ONE's weekly "DISPATCHES" show, with radio dramas and comedies added for 11:30a-noon weekdays at the end of "SOUNDS LIKE CANADA."
The changes take place MARCH 19.
