Business news radio station launching in Toronto
Newsroom Productions Inc.Â said Monday morning that it will launch Canada’s first business news radio station serving Toronto and surrounding areas and all Canadians on-line at cfbnnews.com on April 9, according to a news release.Â
CFBN will be managed by Newsroom ProductionsÂ thru its division CBN (Canada’s Business Network), a Toronto-based radio syndication company that currently produces content for radio stations across the country including “The Fred Ketchen Report” and “Weekends with Sheila Copps.”
“Business is a missing format in Canadian radio, which is surprising because we really have everything else. Our stock market is strong and reaching new highs on a regular basis; there’s never been a better time to launch this type of station,” said Bryan Woodruff, president and general manager of Newsroom ProductionsÂ “CFBN will be more than just numbers and stock quotes, we will offer a business news perspective on everything – from political and social issues to world and international events”
The station will bringÂ analysis from chief market analyst Fred Ketchen and international programming to its audience from the world’s leaders in business news, including CNBC and The Wall St. Journal. The station will also air exclusive market reports and programming from India and China.
