CBC to launch parenting portal

The CBC is set to launch a new parenting-focused website on Sept. 1, Media in Canada reports.

The site will focus on media, including television, the Internet and gaming.

According to the Media in Canada report:

“The site will be used to inform parents about CBC Kids’ offerings, but content won’t be limited to the broadcaster’s properties. ‘Certainly we’ll feature what we’re doing, but it won’t only be CBC content,’ Jennifer Burkitt, executive in charge of interactive content at CBC, tells MiC. ‘We’ll talk about, for instance, research that’s going on in the world of gaming. We’ll talk about music, we’ll talk about children’s television.'”
