CBC Radio’s DNTO to End
May 2, 2016

CBC Radio One’s long-running Saturday afternoon program “DNTO (Definitely Not The Opera)” is about to take its final bow.

The public broadcaster says the show will end its 22-year run on May 14.

Sook-Yin Lee, who’s been hosting “DNTO” since September 2002, will be taking on a new project with the CBC.

Meanwhile, a statement says the show’s Winnipeg-based producers are developing a yet-to-be-announced new CBC show.

Susan Marjetti, executive director of radio and audio at CBC English Services, says they “wanted to go out on a high” and adds “it was time for a change.”

“DNTO” debuted on Sept. 10, 1994, delivering personal stories from a wide variety of Canadians.
