CBC cuts hit sports
Though sports produces a lot of CBC's revenue, it didn't escape today's cuts aimed at overcoming the corporation's $171 million shortfall.
Gone is the radio show The Inside Track, a CBC staple for decades. At this point, the CBC is saying only that the following sports will face reductions or cutbacks in coverage of alpine skiing, world aquatics, track and field, international figure skating and CONCACAF soccer. The depth of those cuts will be made clearer soon.
As for personnel, all the CBC is saying at this point is that 313 jobs will be cut in sports, entertainment, current affairs and sales.
