from CBC.ca archives | Thu, 26 Sep 1996

The 6:30 p.m. EDT broadcast of As It Happens makes CBC Radio, �the first public broadcaster in the world to offer continuous, real-time transmission on the internet.�

CBC English Radio vice-president Harold Redekopp says the service will �greatly increase the range and impact� of CBC Radio. Both CBC Radio and CBC Stereo (now Radio One and Radio Two) are streamed through radio.cbc.ca using RealAudio 3.0.
