On March 25 CBC will launch MUSIC DAY ON CBC which will be an all-day celebration of Canadian music across all platforms leading up to the live broadcast of the 2018 Juno Awards. This will feature special programming across television, radio and online. Music Day on CBC will become an annual event and is part of CBC Music’s extensive JUNO 365 content, which will shine a spotlight on homegrown music all year long. MUSIC DAY ON CBC will culminate with the first-ever live broadcast of the JUNO Awards in all time zones across Canada starting at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET on CBC. In another first, the awards will also be broadcast on both CBC Radio networks and livestream globally at cbcmusic.ca/junos.
“The JUNOS have come back to Canada’s public broadcaster and we couldn’t be happier to have them on CBC,” said Heather Conway, executive vice-president, English Services, CBC. “Music reflects who we are as a people. As the home of Canadian music, CBC’s support goes well beyond the awards broadcast. Our efforts continue throughout the year. And this year we are introducing Music Day on CBCMarch 25 across all platforms. It’s just one initiative that reflects our deep commitment to Canadian music and artists.”
