CBC’s Sounds Like Canada to be silenced after summer
CBC Radio says its weekday morning show, Sounds Like Canada, will end its six-year run at the end of the summer.
The Radio One show’s cancellation follows the decision by host Shelagh Rogers to leave her position on May 30.
Shelagh Rogers, host of Sounds Like Canada, announced over the weekend she was leaving the show at the end of May.
The show will be replaced by a new program, yet to be developed.
“This change provides us with the opportunity to continue evolving the Radio One daytime schedule to meet the needs of current and new listeners,” said Chris Boyce, CBC Radio’s interim program director, in a release on Thursday.
“We don’t know what the new show will look like, but we do know we need a strong host, with a strong personality, that the audience will connect with and want to spend time with.”
CBC Radio will be hatching ideas with small groups of programmers, according to the release.
Rogers made her announcement over the weekend.
Sounds Like Canada is one of the network’s two flagship radio morning shows that replaced the three-hour program This Morning. Anna Maria Tremonti’s The Current is the other show.
Rogers hosted This Morning for two years until 2002 before the slot was split into two programs. Rogers moved to Vancouver in 2003 with the new program.
The broadcaster has been with CBC Radio since 1980.
