The Current

About the Show

  • RADIO
  • ONLINE

The Current is a meeting place of perspectives, ideas and voices, with a fresh take on issues that affect Canadians today. Our team of journalists--based in every major region of the country--think locally and globally. We bring new insight to stories that Canadians are talking about now, and we uncover stories they'll be talking about next week and next year.

We don't just talk about the issues. We poke and prod them and look at them from new angles, shedding light on what needs to be exposed and taking delight in the surprising twists and turns our stories take. Nothing's off limits--politics, business, culture, justice, science, religion--if it's pertinent to Canadians, it's on The Current agenda.

Host Anna Maria Tremonti is our focal point. Her wealth of experience and journalistic savvy bring depth and sharpness to The Current as it unfolds from coast to coast to coast.
