CBC announces more details of cuts

CBC English Services will cut up to 80 positions from its news divisions across the country as part of its efforts to make up a $171 million shortfall in 2009-10, the CBC's web page reports.

Richard Stursberg, executive vice-president of CBC's English Services, announced details of cutbacks to radio and television on Thursday in a speech to employees.

The cuts to programming will mean fewer episodes of many prime time television shows and cuts to entire programs on both Radio One and Radio 2.
