CBC News: Country Canada

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

CBC News: Country Canada (until January 2006 titled Country Canada) was a Canadian television series broadcast on CBC Television. It was produced by CBC Winnipeg, and profiled rural and country life in Canada.

Sandy Cushin was Country Canada's host between 1975 and 2000. In its final years it was hosted by Reg Sherren.[1]

Country Canada began in 1954 as Country Calendar, and was also produced by CBWT.

On April 4, 2007, CBC announced the cancellation of Country Canada at the end of that season, after 54 years. The last broadcast was Sept. 16, 2007.

In 2001, the CBC and Corus Entertainment launched a digital television channel fashioned after Country Canada. Now the service is called Cottage Life and is owned by Blue Ant Media.[citation needed]
