CBC Hosts Head Back To School

The hosts of CBC Toronto’s popular Metro Morning program are back on the air – just not at the CBC. Having paid a $5 volunteer fee, the radio veterans behind Toronto’s most popular morning show have begun broadcasting over the University of Toronto’s student station, CIUT. Some locked-out workers worry that such freelancing will only prove the CBC’s point that programming can be produced on the cheap, but the Metro Morning (now known as “Toronto Unlocked”) crew insists that the CIUT show was only made possible through “hundreds of volunteer hours, a television bought from a weekend yard sale and a clock radio.”
