at the CBC during the CMG lockout. The Canadian Press reports that the games being broadcast without announcers have attracted record audiences – and not just for the first game presented in this format, which was a novelty – the ratings are going up each time.
Note that I would love to point to the Globe and Mail article on the subject, but they’ve locked it up behind a pay wall. So yet again a major newspaper has given up the opportunity to be authoritative and to make a contribution to the public dialogue on issues of interest to Canadians. As they do hundreds of times a week, every time they block a story.
