Celine Galipeau instead. Multi-lingual, foreign correspondent in far more countries than tongue-disabled Pastor Mansbridge, and experienced. She’s been reading Le National for some time in the French language, so English (or Russian, or Chinese, or Arabic) would be simple.
What a lack of talent at the Corpse! How about a local news anchor from somewhere in the States?
Aren’t they looking for a place to stash Strombo?
Norm MacDonald…he was pretty good on “Weekend Update”. Or maybe the guy from the Trivago commercials.
Except that a later post,
Rosemary Barton @RosieBarton Sep 5
ICYMI the one and only @petermansbridge leaving @CBCTheNational next Canada Day. 😢
showed that most twitterati dislike Peter Mansbridge vehemently.
And Rosie is not respected either.
Before the Olympics started CBC did not have a single show in the top 30. CTV news, national, evening, and weekend, were 7, 13 and 14. Today, the Globe, drooling all over Mansbrige, published a bunch of misleading numbers which appear to show people are actually watching the overpaid, overpraised bore.
The Globe also promoted Rosie Barton to head of list, others (male, unilingual) are Toronto based, and last is Vancouver-based Ian HansomeMan.
I see there is a campaign for Adrian Harewood from Ottawa.
Razzle Dazzle was a great show. How about Alan Hamel or Howard The Turtle? I checked, they are available.
Michelle Finney has a black belt. Kick-ass!!
Hey now…many Franks ago I nominated Jerome the Giraffe to take on the Mansbingo mantle. Far as I can tell he has all the essential qualities…gravitas…excellent diction…the ability to conduct small ensembles (such as the At Issue panel) with a baton held between clenched teeth…and, most importantly, there’s papier maché filling the space between his ears.
Razzle Dazzle… But Hamel and Finney must be, uh, seniors by now. I mean, they were already young adults when I was a little kid, and I’m about ready to retire. OMG, Hamel is 80! Nothing about Finney on Wikipedia. But Howard the Turtle is probably ageless.
Michelle Finney is in IMDB with 2 recent movies. There were interviews in her martial arts days to be found in your local libraries Canada Newsstand databases.
Who is announcing flights these days in Thompson Manitoba? Might be the next Chief CBC Bingocaller.
