Linden MacIntyre to leave CBC's the fifth estate

Linden MacIntyre, co-host of CBC’s the fifth estate for the past 24 years, will leave the program at the end of the summer.
MacIntyre, who has won 10 Gemini Awards and an international Emmy, said he’s leaving in an effort to help save other jobs.
“If by stepping aside now I can create a little comfort zone for the survival for another year or two of younger people, then it’s worth whatever inconvenience this will cause to me and the show,” MacIntyre told the Toronto Star.
In April, CBC/Radio Canada announced it will lose at least 657 employees over the next two years as part of $130 million in cuts needed to balance the 2014-15 budget. MacIntyre says many of the cuts will affect behind-the-scenes staff.
