The web radio station launched Wednesday; Mansbridge marks 25 years of hosting The National this week. That's a quarter century spent building Canadians' trust, and the CBC News audience - plus the Reader's Digest 2013 Trust Poll - would agree he's got that journalistic credibility thing down.
But how's his indie cred?
Need we remind you of Mansbridge's many one-on-one interviews with Canadian music legends?
As for his CBC Music playlist - which is only his latest, by the way - like a great edition of The National, it's got a bit of everything: classic Canadiana from Neil Young, hip hop from k-os, lo-fi rock courtesy Japandroids, pop by Tegan and Sara...and Justin Bieber.
