Shows focusing on health care and the environment ó hot button issues with Canadians ó lead the lineup for the summer schedule released by CBC Radio One Friday.
Hanomansing, host of CBC TV’s Vancouver newscast, will host Feeling the Heat, a show that showcases innovative ways to keep the planet healthy and livable with an emphasis on individual responsibility.
Anna Maria Tremonti of The Current will host a show to be called Climate Currents with highlights of The Current’s environmental coverage and portraits of the people and places affected by climate change.
