Will 'Hockey Night in Canada' be able to successfully replace the old theme?
Wed, September 3, 2008

TORONTO - The CBC received nearly 15,000 submissions in its quest to find a new theme song for "Hockey Night in Canada."

A total of 14,685 entries were submitted to the broadcaster's Anthem Challenge contest prior to the Aug. 31 deadline, CBC said Wednesday.

The network is holding the Canada-wide search after the rights to the iconic jingle that opened its weekly hockey broadcast for some 40 years were snapped up by CTV in June.

Taxpayers footin' the bill for $500 a night?

Keep the song and axe the commentators.

Absolutely they should keep. What is HNCI without the theme song. They should alos keep Don Cherry. Without either, it may as well be an American broadcast of hockey!

It's a sad day indeed when the brass knuckleheads at CBC don't realize what hockey means to Canada and everything surrounding it.

Along with other not so brilliant moves (i.e. - trying to get rid of Don Cherry) this one will surely go down as another one of their great blunders. All to save a lousy $500 per game that it is used. Nice.

"According to the site, the CBC has advisted Claman that the contract will not be renewed and the broadcaster has chosen to move in a new direction."

I sure hope this new direction includes not featuring the sad sack Leafs every week and actually showing competetive hockey teams!
