CBC Radio introduces new B.C. Interior afternoon show

CBC Radio will launch its new afternoon show, Radio West, today.

The show, to be hosted by Rebecca Zandbergen, will be broadcast from the Kelowna CBC radio studio on Lawrence Avenue and cover the B.C. Interior and North Coast.

For listeners here, it will replace, On The Coast, a Victoria-based afternoon show that, up to today, covered the entire province.

Billed as a show that will bring listeners closer to the people making the news in the Interior, Radio West, will air from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday and is part of an expansion of the public broadcaster’s operations in the southern Interior. Next year, CBC will introduce a new morning show out of Kamloops that will broadcast to northern parts of the southern Interior.

CBC Radio currently produces Daybreak South, a morning talk show, with host Chris Walker, that broadcasts out of Kelowna and currently covers the entire B.C. southern Interior.
