CBC Cuts The Signal (Kinda)

Posted on

In a town hall meeting today, CBC's English Services executive vice president, Richard Stursberg, announced details on some of the cuts to its programming.

Of note to music fans: Radio 2 will cut the Manitoba-produced weekend edition of The Signal, hosted by Pat Carrabré (who's up for a Juno this weekend). Radio 2 will also cut In the Key of Charles and plans "more consolidations with Radio 3," whatever that means. It'll also reduce the number of live music production and recordings it does.

While none of this bodes well for, er, much of anything, it does appear that regional show The (204) is safe from the axe, which is good news for Manitoba music and fans alike.

Find out more about the cuts on CBC's website and follow Stursberg's presentation minute-by-minute.
