This is a real shame because Dan was doing such a good job in the slot. CBC had a great opportunity to revamp the line-up with a diverse young group and instead chose another older white man. Killeen is a strong anchor don’t get me wrong, but this just seems like CBC took the easy option when they could have built a really strong and fresh young team.

Tamara Taggart should have been hired also. Mike is well respected and deserved this opportunity.

Interesting. The release gave background on all the players except Mr. Burrett. Was he omitted for some reason? I thought he was doing really well at 6 pm also.

Odd move to put Mike with an unseasoned and inexperienced host. Has Bathe even hosted before?
Dan should feel short changed. He was doing a great job and gets replaced by another middle aged white guy.

Old and white VS strong and fresh, Ron F? Do you really go around thinking that way?

Local “News Anchors” are about as relevant today as Block Buster Video.
These Barbie & Ken dolls with their goofy/perfect hair reading teleprompters earnestly telling us things that anyone with internet would know 7 hours earlier.
…Silly really.
But, I guess some people – of a certain age – still “find comfort” in the whole dog & pony show.
