Re: [Swprograms] Cuts at the CBC



These cuts are indeed depressing, but the CBC has gone through this sort
of retrenchment before and has managed to survive.  It's interesting to
see that they are considering advertisements on Radio 2.  I'm old enough
to remember when adds were dropped from CBC AM radio.  Things seem to be
coming full circle.

One of the things that hasn't been mentioned, but the most profitable
broadcast property the CBC owns is the Hockey Night In Canada franchise on
TV.  Tit It is up for renegotiation at the end of the 2014 NHL season.  At
the very least the CBC will have major competition for this and could well
lose it all together.  While HNIC is expensive to produce, it brings in
huge revenues and the CBC could well find themselves in even more trouble.

RNW did this a few years back - the feature programming (such as it
is) remains, but no live newscasts embedded in the editions as they're
aired around the world.

So you make the feature program (e.g. "The Link") once each day and that's
it...

And if Sackville goes, so does the Northern Quebec SW service.
