Because News

About the Show

BECAUSE NEWS (Radio) is CBC’s weekly news quiz. Airing Saturdays on CBC Radio One and coming to CBC Television as a new adaptation in Fall 2020, host Gavin Crawford and his hilarious panel of smart alecks make games out of the week's news. Panellists discuss the breaking stories we cared about, the ones we didn't - but probably should've - and the ones that just left us feeling newsy-ated.

If you’re fed up with your feed, we’ll keep you laughing. Why? Because News. 

Adapted from the CBC Radio One show, BECAUSE NEWS (TV) with host Gavin Crawford is produced by CBC's Sally Catto, General Manager, Entertainment, Factual & Sports; Trish Williams, Executive Director, Scripted Content; Michelle Daly, Senior Director, Comedy, Scripted Content; and Elizabeth Bowie is Executive Producer and creator of BECAUSE NEWS
