More Revamping For CBC Radio Two
May 18, 2007 at 5:45 AM (PT)
The second phase of Classical CBC RADIO TWO's programming revamp will see a new flagship Classical show established for SUNDAYS 1-5p and the move of SATURDAY afternoon opera programming to 1-5p.
SUNDAY's new show, which has not yet been given a name, will air Canadian and international symphonies, with the aim of reaching a wider and younger audience with more contemporary pieces. "SATURDAY AFTERNOON AT THE OPERA" will get a new host, as GRAND PHILHARMONIC CHOIR Conductor HOWARD DYCK has exited the post; guest hosts will fill the slot until the show's shift and revamp are set. The changes are expected to take place in OCTOBER, with other changes yet to be determined.
