Part of the budget cuts: CBC slashing 650 jobs (http://www.sunnewsnetwork.ca/sunnews/canada/archives/2012/04/20120404-145910.html)

CBC will also sell off Bold, a specialty channel that airs dramas, sports and comedy shows.

Sad news for skating fans in Canada. :(

VERY sad news, indeed - I have to wonder a) who will buy BOLD and b) whether they will have any interest in broadcasting skating.

Since it is CBC that has the contract with the ISU, it might be possible to work out some sort of deal for the BOLD buyer...

Possible but unlikely , skating is not really a high viewer show at present....:(

This is all a part of the Conservatives ideological plan to destroy the CBC... and now it begins. They can purposely lie to Canadians about spending an extra $11 Billion on fighter jets with no engines that even the USA says is a flawed process right now... but they can cut 20,000 jobs and destroy one of this country's foremost institutions! Yep, that's Conservatives at work for you... :rolleyes:

I'm so sad about this cut.

The only good is that if it weren't this cut, it could be more job cuts. People's jobs are more important than my enjoyment of the channel.

Hopefully, it will take a long time for the CBC to sell BOLD.

I read about this. Cancel Don Cherry's contract, that should save some major change.

Bastards.

That's terrible news. I missed that completely. It seems like every govt slashes the CBC budget. It's a wonder the corp still exists.
