Surprising change of long time CBC morning show

Postby SKradiophile » Tue Nov 21, 2017 4:25 pm

CBC Morning Show producer posted on the CBC Sask Facebook page late yesterday that the show is looking for a new host. Sheila Coles has been the anchor since about 1992 and the listeners haven't heard any on air announcements of her retirement. CBC version of putting a horse's head in the star+s bed so she gets the idea?

I went looking for the post in question and couldn’t find it. You’re sure it’s not for the Saskatoon local show?

Oh I hope you're right. The woman brought in on a mat leave for the Saskatoon CBC Morning Show earlier this year is just awful. Little interviewing skill, ZERO on air chemistry with anyone on the staff and occasionally sounds like she bolsters her coffee with something other than milk or sugar.

Yup. Fascinating. The Morning Edition may not get gangbusters ratings, but Coles is pretty well liked. It also seems like her to not want any fuss.

Actually in the last ratings book, it has been the morning show with the biggest numbers, Remember, the MotherCorp thinks it is the star first and foremost so the strong ratings and Ms. Coles is now at top of the salary grid.
