What Jim Knows

CBC Radio ’will suffer‘

“Local (CBC) services will suffer as a result of this problem specifically with CBC English television,” Jim Thompson, a spokesman for Ottawa-based Friends of Canadian Broadcasting, said Tuesday.

Thompson said CBC‘s decision to air American-made TV variety shows has “put a dent in CBC‘s budget” that will be felt right across the public broadcaster.

“It‘s a double-whammy effect, because to top it off, these programs they have chosen to run are not performing well,” said Thompson.
