Broadcast Dialogue – The Podcast: Susan Marjetti, General Manager of CBC News, Current Affairs & Local

It’s not often media outlets announce they’re hiring in the current climate, but CBC News has started recruiting for 14 new permanent positions, focused in small and medium sized markets like Nanaimo, Cranbrook, Grande Prairie, Kingston and the North.

On this episode of Broadcast Dialogue – The Podcast, we welcome Susan Marjetti, General Manager of News, Current Affairs & Local, for CBC to talk about the public broadcaster’s renewed focus on local connection, ongoing criticism about CBC’s role, newsroom diversity, and more.
