Canadian Broadcasting Centre
Lonely Planet review for Canadian Broadcasting Centre
Toronto's enormous Canadian Broadcasting Centre is the headquarters for English-language radio and TV across Canada. French-language production is in Montréal, which leaves the president (in a truly Canadian spirit of compromise) stranded in Ottawa.
You can peek at the radio newsrooms anytime or attend a concert in the world-class Glenn Gould Studio. Don't miss the miniature-sized CBC Museum with its amazing collection of antique microphones (the 1949 RCA 74DX is a doozy!), sound-effects machines, tape recorders and puppets from kids' TV shows. Next door the Graham Spry Theatre screens ever-changing CBC programming.
