CBC Radio One

From Academic Kids

CBC Radio One is the English language news and information radio network of the publicly-owned Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. It is commercial free and offers both local and national programming. It is available to ninety-eight percent of Canadians, and is also available overseas through Radio Canada International and also over the Internet.

CBC radio began in 1936, and is the oldest branch of the Corporation. Beginning in 1944, the CBC operated two English language radio services, the original network became the Trans-Canada Network and a new network, the Dominion Network was established with CJBC in Toronto as its flagship. With the exception of CJBC, all the stations on the CBC Dominion Network were privately owned affiliates, its programming tended to be lighter than that of the Trans-Canada Network and carried more American programming in its schedule. As well, the Dominion Network operated only in the evenings freeing affiliates to air local programming during the days. In 1962, the Dominion Network was dissolved and within a few years CJBC became a French-language station broadcasting the programming of Radio-Canada. CBC Radio stopped running commercial advertising in 1974.

In 1960, the CBC began running distinct programming on its FM stations, which were previously simulcasts of the AM stations. This was discontinued in 1962, but resumed in 1964. In 1975, the FM network was branded CBC Stereo, and the AM service was designated CBC Radio.

In the 1990s, many of the CBC's AM stations moved to FM, meaning that the old distinction between the AM "Radio" network and the FM "Stereo" network was no longer accurate. As a result, in 1997 the services were rebranded with CBC Radio becoming CBC Radio One and CBC Stereo becoming CBC Radio Two.

CBC Radio One promotional spots are generally announced by Canadian actress Shauna MacDonald, also known as "Promo Girl", and typically end with one of two slogans: either "Because sometimes a picture needs a thousand words" or "Hear the big picture".

Shortwave delivery of CBC Radio

CBC-SRC Radio reception is poor, and often non-existant outside of Canada's major cities. This proposal seeks to alleviate this decades long problem.

By making CBC-SRC Radio avalable into the High Artic, Canada's claim on the region is strengthened.
