The request to air the CBC National News "live" from the grounds of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board was granted by Board officials earlier in the week and confirmed by the CBC today. According to producers of the CBC National News, the Sudbury Catholic District School Board was selected as the site for newscast because of "its unique and picturesque setting, which affords a great view of the City of Greater Sudbury and the city lights at night".
Crews and equipment for the CBC National News will arrive at the Sudbury Catholic District School Board at approximately 1:00 p.m. on Monday, March 12, 2007 to begin the setup and preparations for the newscast. The CBC National news will begin broadcasting at 9:00 p.m. to stations in Canada’s eastern time zone with Mr. Mansbridge anchoring the show from a news set positioned on the back of a 5-ton truck located on the grounds of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board.
The Sudbury Catholic District School Board welcomes the opportunity to be the host site for one of Canada most prestigious and highly respected national news programs.
