CBC/Radio-Canada announced Monday that it will introduce new radio and Internet services in the Kitchener-Waterloo and London, Ont. areas. The CBC said the expansion is part of its five-year plan and that the new services will be available in the fall of 2012. “The intent is to connect and reflect the cities in all their richness and diversity,” Susan Marjetti, CBC managing director of the CBC's Toronto and Ontario regions, said in a release. “Kitchener-Waterloo is a vibrant urban centre, with much to offer by the way of technology, business, arts and culture, and great quality of life. We're looking forward to sharing all of the details, as we get closer to our launch in 2012." Kristine Stewart, executive vice-president of CBC English services, added that as a public broadcaster it's the CBC's job to meet audience expectations and evolve the ways that it delivers services. The CBC said new weekend news programming will also be introduced in the cities of Edmonton, Alta., Ottawa, Ont., and St. John’s, Nfld., in the spring and fall of 2012. Further details about the new Kitchener-Waterloo and London services will be released in the next few months, the CBC said.
