CBC Shifts Away from TV

Wednesday, July 2, 2014

The Canadian Broadcasting Company is being forced to downsize television programming after cuts were announced. According to The Globe and Mail, the changes will play into a broadcast strategy that will shift focus to online and mobile content.

From Globe and Mail parliamentary reporter Daniel LeBlanc's story: "CBC president Hubert Lacroix will lay out on Thursday the public broadcaster’s strategy to be on a stronger footing by 2020, with insiders forecasting a 'culture shift' that will leave winners and losers in the organization.

"Recent cutbacks were largely spread out across the board, but sources said future reductions will be more focused, with the television sector’s 'general programming' facing the greatest upheaval. The CBC’s news section is expected to be largely spared, leaving other elements of the broadcaster’s television schedule facing cutbacks and changes."
