The past week of rumors tumbling out of CBC headquarters in Toronto are correct. Don Newman’s chair will not be filled on the venerable show Politics. In fact, several senior sources inside the CBC have confirmed the plan to cancel Politics show outright. CBC Newsworld is undergoing a network “transformation” and while the “transformed” schedule might have had a spot for Don Newman, it won’t now that he is taking early retirement. A co-hosted duel-city show with an economic edge coming out of Toronto and Ottawa may replace it. I’m also hearing Carol MacNeil may be tapped to lead this effort. CBC spokesperson, Jeff Keay, refused to confirm the cancellation saying management was, “Still in the process of looking at what form the show will take.” What do you think about the CBC cancelling Politics? Update: Several CBC sources close to Ms. MacNeil suggest she is staying put at CBC News Sunday. in Toronto. (CBC News Sunday has been cancelled).
