Claude will ensure we are positioned to do just that.”

“This is a very interesting time for media organizations here in Canada and around the world,” said Mr. Galipeau. “I’m thrilled to be joining CBC/Radio-Canada at a time when public broadcasting matters more than ever, and when the Corporation is working on so many exciting projects and opportunities. Canadians demand a lot of their public broadcaster and I think it has a lot to give, not just in our own country, but around the world.”

Mr. Galipeau will be based in Toronto and will be joining the public broadcaster effective January 7, 2019.

The Public Media Alliance warmly welcome Claude and we look forward to working with him in the future.
