Feb 8, 2012


HAMILTON, ON - CBC has found a home for its new local digital service in Hamilton, which is scheduled to start this Spring.

The national broadcaster said Wednesday that the new service will be located in the city’s downtown in the former Dominion Furniture Store at 118 James Street North (pictured below, building on the right). Accessible through smart phones, desktop/laptop computers and tablet devices, the service aims to provide an up-to-the-minute, and ‘look ahead’ view of local news, weather, events and other information.

"We're absolutely thrilled to have found such a remarkable home at the centre of Hamilton's growing arts, entertainment and design scene", said Susan Marjetti, managing director of the Toronto region, CBC English services, in the news release. "Being at the very heart of Hamilton has been our goal since we announced we'd be coming to the city, not only in the news and information we'll be providing but also in our deep desire to be an active part of this community."
