The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation was founded on November 2nd, 1936 and since then they’ve been able to become a powerhouse in the Canadian Broadcasting Industry. They first began with radio, becoming famous for having incredible hosts who knew how to excite the public. Eventually technology would increase and allow for CBC to become a Television Broadcasting Company. Today it was announced that CBC Radio & CBC will be gaining the rights to the 2018 and 2020 Olympics. They currently hold the rights to the 2014 and 2016 Olympics as well.
This means that people who are busy at work or are on the road for the majority of the day will be able to tune into whatever Olympic event is taking place on their radio. Those who are at home will be able to access the Olympics through the CBC Television Channel. There is no word if CBC will be making some of their most famous hosts for Sirius Canada or hosts from the past to take on the role of hosting the Olympics.
Canadians have already begun to express their approval of this decision as Rogers, the previous owners to the rights of the Olympics aren’t originally a Canadian based company but instead are owned by an American based company. CBC holds their roots to Canada and have never made the effort to venture out of the country for more business. This doesn’t mean that the Olympics Committee can’ change their mind in the upcoming three years, we will inform you of any changes that are made.
