The CBC We Want, FRIENDS’ national conversation about our national public broadcaster, comes to Winnipeg.
After another round of service reductions many supporters of CBC are left wondering how to make a difference.
Should the CBC chase audience, introduce ads to Radio Two and go more commercial?
Should it provide high-quality programming that is different from the private sector?
Or, is there another path?
We need to be clear about what we want from our national public broadcaster.
The CBC We Want will be a lively exchange of ideas that you shouldn’t miss.
