Following Thursday’s announcement that CBC will seek proposals in November to buy assets related to the transmission of its TV and radio signals, the Guild asked for a high-level meeting to get more information.
The announcement states that “the CBC-owned assets which are being considered for sale are; land, towers, transmitter buildings, diesel gensets, broadband antennas with multiple users as well as the RCI Sackville Shortwave Facility.?Essentially any assets that generate revenue and/or can be shared by multiple users will be considered.?Assets not included in the potential sale are those that are for the exclusive use of CBC/Radio-Canada.”?
The announcement also says that no layoffs would result from a potential sale.
