CBC is reporting that "A" (formely A-Channel, and before that The New RO, and before that CHRO) has cancelled the 6:00pm and 11:00pm newscasts. (The morning show, however, will continue.) Employees were called to a meeting this morning, and were told that the newscasts - and their jobs - were gone effective today. A's parent company, CTVglobemedia, said it couldn't afford to keep the station running.
Last week the company warned employees it would have to make cuts at all of the "A" stations.
