CBC Radio One's new season launch and Facebook Live week
CBC Radio One is back for a new season, and we're launching with a special event.
All this week, CBC Radio will be going live to Facebook with behind-the-scenes, live video from more than a dozen of our national radio shows.
We're peeling back the curtain on how we make our radio programs each day — visiting the control room for The Current as it goes live to the East Coast; dropping in on a live taping of of the hilarious comedy Because News, listening in as Day 6 staff decide on content for "Riffed From the Headlines", hearing personal podcast recommendations from Podcast Playlist and much more.
These videos will be delivered on Facebook Live through the CBC Radio Facebook account from Tuesday through Friday of this week — launch week for CBC Radio's returning programs.
Many of these videos will be hosted by incoming Cross Country Checkup host Duncan McCue, leading up to his first show of the new season on Sunday, Sept. 11. And it's your chance to talk to us directly, asking questions to Duncan, our hosts and producers via the comments below each live video.
