CBC London, Ont. station set to launch in June

CBC, that has been mostly absent from London, Ontario, will open a novel station in June, the CBC web page notes, referring to the move as "the long-awaited plan."
The station will be located inside the central branch of the London Public Library on Dundas Street and will officially launch June 12 with a new morning radio show and an extensive online news presence.
"This is a digital-first station, which means we'll get stories and information to you first on your smart phones, on social media streams, and online," said Marissa Nelson, CBC's senior managing director in Ontario. "That way, we can give you the news you need updated throughout the day and into the evening."
In addition to CBC London's new morning show, which will broadcast from 6 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., the station will also be the new home of Afternoon Drive, the afternoon radio show currently based in Windsor.
