That's a great question

Host Robyn Bresnahan is known for asking tough questions and leading thoughtful conversations. When you tune in to Ottawa Morning, you'll find connections to your community and hard-hitting interviews that make you think, 'That's a great question.'

You've done your research

Host Alan Neal is known for his attention to detail. He goes into the CBC archives and finds meaningful tidbits from decades past that add something special to his interviews with musicians, authors and local celebrities. You're bound to learn something new when you tune in to All In A Day.

Your local news starts right now

When you tune in to CBC Ottawa News at 6, you'll hear that opening line, 'Your local news starts right now.' The CBC Ottawa team brings you the latest local updates every weekday with Adrian Harewood in the community and Lucy van Oldenbarneveld guiding the news day from the studio.

Have a great weekend. Take care. 

On Saturday mornings, host Giacomo Panico is in Studio 12 ready to make a cappuccino for his guests. In Town And Out is known for great conversations about community events happening around Ottawa and beyond as you start your weekend.

The beginning of the long dash 

If you're a CBC Radio fan, you'll recognize Laurence Wall's voice and the repeated beeps over the airwaves every day just before 1 p.m. ET. The National Research Council official time signal marked its 80th birthday this year. Celebrate with this custom mug.
