Compass returning to CBC-TV Thursday
CBC working to have all local news shows back on the air
The CBC's television supper hour news program for Prince Edward Island is scheduled to return Thursday.
A week ago, CBC suspended Compass and other supper hour shows across Canada. With coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic putting stress on infrastructure, and many staff ill, working from home, or self-isolating after travel, the decision was made to suspend the television programs to protect the integrity of the network, said the CBC's Brodie Fenlon.
Compass will return as a 30-minute local newscast starting at 6 p.m., with host Louise Martin and meteorologist Jay Scotland.
CBC is working to have all the local shows back on the main network soon.
