The Current is a meeting place of perspectives, ideas and voices. We take a fresh look at issues affecting Canadians by poking and prodding them from new angles. (CBC)

In order to provide audiences with the latest information, as well as all the health, travel and human stories connected to COVID-19 that matter to Canadians, CBC is extending The Current with Matt Galloway until noon in most time zones.  

The program will be responsive and incorporate the latest updates from the prime minister and public health officials with added analysis and context — and it will connect the audience with other Canadians here and abroad who are dealing with the fallout from the virus. It will also share stories of hope and inspiration.

Even though this programming change means q will be on hiatus for the time being, host Tom Power will make regular appearances on The Current to bring stories of artists coping with COVID-19, feature interviews and recommendations on culture to consume during this time of social isolation.
