Soon radio: CBC settles

The Toronto Star is reporting that the Canadian Media Guild and the CBC have a tentative agreement. Thank heavens. The silence in the mornings has been deeply unsettling. I didn't imagine it would bother me that much. But it has. I have been really impressed with how the CBC workers have run the strike. They've been positive, constructive and they've given of their time and their skill back to their listeners and the public in general.

Mister Rabinovitch, open the doors please

I love the CBC. The website and the radio are my morning information fix. It's the news I trust and I even still appreciate the occasional glimmer of original TV entertainment that still gets created. But this lockout thing distresses me. (A letter I wrote to CBC Audience Relations today)
