Are you glad HNIC is staying on the CBC? Mon, March 26, 2007
The CBC will announce later today that its longest-standing tradition — Hockey Night in Canada — is staying on the network for the foreseeable future.
The Sun has learned a news conference involving the CBC and the NHL has been called for noon today in Toronto to make the official announcement.
There had been widespread speculation for several months that CTV Globemedia would make a major push to take Hockey Night away from the CBC, which has carried the Saturday night series for more than 50 years. No program has a longer history on the public broadcaster's airwaves.
