  1. Oh the illustrious CKNW. I’m a 62 year old former broadcaster and conservative, brought up on the vastly superior NW of years gone by.

    Left leaning announcers for the most part… anyone disagree?

    More importantly, far less superior talent in news readers…is there anyone who POSSIBLY disagrees?

  2. Cephas, I agree with your comments. I had to stop listening to CKNW because of the excessive commercials that started to overlap into the newscasts. The news presenters are dreadful. The good ones (Terry Schintz, John Copsey) have either left the station or died.

    The vastly superior CKNW that we both grew up with is but a distant memory.

    It’s interesting to note that CBC Radio One has disappeared from the ratings. Did listeners become tired of its constant progressive proselytizing?

  3. We, the younger gen are sick of CBC and their clear censorship in their comment section especially when it comes to anything Liberal related. CBC pushes fake agendas woke attitudes. People are sick of it. CBC was great for Marketplace and actual features where they did ACTUAL reporting and investigative reports that helped the general public.

    • I like your comment, Suzan, and if any of your contemporaries feel the same as you do about the CBC, there is hope. I’m a boomer and no longer listen to the CBC as I did in the past. The French service, Radio-Canada is interesting, though.

      The irony is that the CBC began pandering to the “younger gen” in order to gain an audience, and as a result lost its long-time viewers and listeners who became repelled by the new programming. As you have stated, the “younger gen” doesn’t like it as well.
