CBC to cut Calgary Newsworld

CBC News is shutting down the Calgary unit of its 24-hour Newsworld television service as of the end of May, and introducing additional positions for newsgathering, they told staff on April 3. The decision will result in 32 redundancies. However, 25 new positions — largely reporters, camera operators and other field production posts — will be created in Calgary and Edmonton to boost newsgathering and local coverage.
