CBC Hourly Newscast MP3 Download - Perpetually Updated

CBCWhen it comes to getting my news, I turn to the CBC first. It's straight up, solid information, and it doesn't appear tainted by glitz, glamour or bias. I like CBC Newsworld for my television news and CBC Radio One for my radio news.

A tremendous resource when it comes to news and current affairs in this country is the vast assortment of CBC Podcasts available online. One gem, which you might not know about but will thank me for pointing it out, is the CBC Radio Hourly newscast that's always current and always available at the same url. This is awfully convenient. Download it, or listen to the < 5 minute broadcast at http://podcast.cbc.ca/mp3/hourlynews.mp3.

If you're looking for Toronto info, Metro Morning with Andy Barrie makes several segments available for download at http://www.cbc.ca/toronto/features/podcast/.

You're welcome.

Paid by us, owned by us. I wouldn't have it any other way. Long live the CBC!

That should read "glad to be of service".

I have now added the link to the hourly video to my iPhone home screen. If I'm out and about, and not near a radio, BAM! Instant CBC news.

I trust CBC news over pretty much any other organization. Unfortunately I have to rely on CTV and a couple of Star chain papers for local news since CBC doesn't much cover my area (I'm from Guelph.) But for national and international news, CBC can't be touched.
