Frequently asked questions

I have a great story idea I'd love to share! How do I pitch it?
The best way to pitch a story to the Eyeopener is to send us an email at eyeopener@cbc.ca. Due to the volume of email we receive, we can't reply directly to every pitch. If it's something we're able to pursue, we'll make sure to get back in touch with you.

I have a music suggestion for the show! How do I get it played?
We don't play a ton of music, and we can't play everything, but we're always willing to listen to your suggestions. We lean heavily towards tunes that are fun, upbeat, and peppy. If it'll help Calgarians get up and moving in the morning, we'll take it! Bonus points if it's a Canadian song.

Who wrote your theme song?
Our theme song (new as of January 2017) was written by local hip-hop group Dragon Fli Empire, based on their 2008 track C-G-Y.

I can't figure out what's being said off the top of your new theme! What are the words?
You're hearing the letters C-G-Y — title of the track.

I'm having radio reception issues — I think something's wrong with your signal.
Get in touch with us via phone, email or Twitter and let us know what you heard, when you heard it, and where you're listening from. We'll pass along this information to our technical crews.

I have another question that isn't listed here…
No problem! Send us a note at eyeopener@cbc.ca and we'll do our best to help you out.
