CBC Hamilton Executive Producer Roger Gillespie was on CFMU radio Thursday to talk about the first five months of the Hamilton digital service.
Gillespie chatted with hosts Matt Jelly and Jamie “Gunner” Smith of In the Neighbourhood for close to 40 minutes.
He spoke about the site's current makeup, the types of stories that are selected and why, and the forthcoming mental health town hall CBC Hamilton is hosting that's slated for Oct. 24 at Mohawk College.
“I always knew — having been here so long and then having gone off to Toronto — I knew there were tons and tons of things in this city that only people in this city know about,” Gillespie said.
“This city has so much to be proud of and so much to talk about and so much to show the country."
Listen to the entire interview here, and catch In the Neighbourhood with Matt and Gunner Tuesday and Thursday from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. on 93.3 CFMU.
