CBC Radio Overnight - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jeff Goodes (@Jeff_Goodes)

The program premiered on May 1, 1995, with its programs sourced from the new World Radio Network. Broadcasters whose programming aired on Overnight included Radio Netherlands, Radio Sweden, Radio Australia, Radio Prague, BBC World Service, Deutsche Welle, Polish Radio External Service, Radio Romania International, and KBS World Radio.

On October 27, 2009, CBC changed the program's schedule, with all programming on weeknights coming from the BBC World Service and Radio Canada International; with the dissolution of Radio Canada International in 2012, The Link was replaced with Public Radio International's The World and a repeat airing of the previous day's edition of CBC Radio's morning show The Current; beginning in 2013, the program added content from Monocle 24. The remainder of the evening is filled with programs from Australia's ABC Radio National and the BBC World Service; some programming from RTÉ Radio 1 and Deutsche Welle also airs on weekends.

No, the CBC’s not cool. Nor should it be
Apr. 21 2014 | The Globe and Mail | KONRAD YAKABUSKI.

It would all be easier if the broadcaster’s leaders, past and present, weren’t still stuck in some alternate reality, deluded by visions of grandeur and budget envy. They think that, if only Canadians funded their public network the way the British and French fund theirs, the CBC could be all things to all people and ne’er a disparaging word would be heard. In other words, it’s not their fault; it’s ours.

What does the future hold for the CBC? - The Globe and Mail

The Globe and Mail

Published Friday, Apr. 11 2014,

you have to create an infrastructure of an organization that can adapt to whatever it is. And that’s a challenge around how do we think about ourselves, and our role, and how do we make ourselves as agile as we can?” In big-picture terms, she said, the CBC “is going to be smaller, it’s going to be faster, it’s going to be engaging.”...Under Ms. Conway, the CBC will strike more partnerships with private Canadian broadcasters and its foreign counterparts. It will also work more with marketers to create so-called branded entertainment (a.k.a. product placement) shows.

The CBC: What’s it good for, without hockey? - The Globe and Mail
Nov. 29 2013 | The Globe and Mail | editorial

Losing hockey is the best thing that could have happened to the CBC. A national institution that long ago lost its way has been given the chance – possibly its last chance – to find its soul. NHL hockey, the most popular pastime in this country, doesn’t need the CBC. And the CBC, if it’s to be what a public broadcaster should be, doesn’t need the NHL.

If the CBC did not exist, would we create it? And to do what?

The strongest argument for the CBC goes something like this: There are some public goods that the free market will not deliver, or will not deliver well enough, and so we create public institutions to do the job. Think of museums, libraries and parks. These would be very different without public support, and in some cases they might not exist at all. There’s a compelling logic to taxpayer backing for the National Gallery of Canada or the Canadian War Museum, or hundreds of other cultural institutions and historical sites. The CBC is, in part, such an institution....Hockey reveals what should have been obvious all along: Popular programming doesn’t need taxpayer support. We don’t need a CBC to compete with the private sector. We need a CBC that goes where the private sector isn’t, doing important things that are necessary but may be less popular.

Consider arts and cultural programming – something that CBC television used to do a lot more of, and then in recent years stepped back from. Or educational and children’s programming. Documentaries. Regional programming. Producing intellectually ambitious Canadian dramas and movies....So here’s a radical proposal to ensure that the CBC retains the spirit of a public broadcaster: Get rid of advertising. No ads on radio, no ads on TV, no ads on the website.

Why newness, not nostalgia, is the way forward for the CBC - The Globe and Mail
Dec. 03 2013 |The Globe and Mail | JOHN DOYLE.

Pardon me if I seem like a CBC bore, but the future cannot be found in nostalgia for a fondly remembered past or in endless collaboration with the enemy. The future is niche and broad, both the new and the familiar....It’s unwise to posit a recalibrated CBC on the antiquities of the past. Nostalgia for The Journal, Barbara Frum, and Patrick Watson’s series is understandable, but there is no going back to the good old days. The TV landscape has changed utterly. Nostalgia is not the way forward....Lacroix’s reliance on partnerships is a red herring. Of course it makes sense to use partnerships with other broadcasters to deliver big sporting events. But to cite “collaboration” with giant private-broadcasting conglomerates as a general panacea is a mistake. CBC-TV’s future is being both niche and broad – and distinctive; its mandate must not be diminished by “collaboration.”...[CBC's]news and documentary coverage must be different. That means more progressive voices heard, filling a huge gap in the Canadian media, an arena dominated by centre and right-wing views. The politically-progressive base in Canada remains stable and remains largely unheard. It’s the CBC’s job to fill that vacuum. Less of the Don Cherry-style dismissal of “pinkos out there that ride bicycles” and more attention to those who reject the right-wing, Big Business view of the country....CBC needs to put art on the air and cover the arts and media with a vigour that no commercial broadcaster will allow....Instead, a sharp questioning of establishment views and establishment stars. Something to make people talk about – whether it’s the demolition of received opinion or the creation of an artistic work for TV that makes your eyes pop and your mind reel.

It’s a fact that CBC is presented with a new circumstance, less reliant on, and preoccupied with, hockey.
