Will the CBC Hamilton digital service offer a totally fresh perspective on local news, politics and the arts scene? Or will it offer the “same old, same old” with the occasional dollop of fresh?

That is the challenge facing CBC Hamilton executive producer, Roger Gillespie, a former Hamilton Spectator journalist prior to his recent position with the Toronto Star, and CBC Hamilton producer Conrad Collaco, who worked in the CHCH-TV newsroom prior to his most recent position at CBC Radio Toronto. This city is in serious need of a local news service with more depth and objectivity than CHCH-TV or CHML radio has provided. A rehash of the existing local news formats with existing local media personalities would not be worth listening to, watching or reading. A new, objective local news service with new local media personalities would be most welcome.

While we await the launch of the CBC Hamilton digital service in the next several weeks, it is encouraging, even exciting, to read about their move into their new headquarters at 118 James Street North in the heart of downtown Hamilton: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/hamiltonbl...
