Our nation’s radio broadcast network, CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation),was created in 1936 as an incentive to promote Canadian content and culture. This was in response to the American broadcast network, gradually expanding into Canada. The CBC television network was established in 1952, and the first show televised, in colour, was The Forest Rangers, in 1963.
“Bringing Canadians Together” was the network’s slogan in 1977 – and now after all the years, it continues to bring our country together through its music, news, stories and entertainment.
