CBC Arts: Cuts begin right away as Bell Globemedia swallows CHUM

Well, it doesn’t take long, does it? Even before the deal goes through, CHUM is axing local broadcasting and moving towards more centralised news productions. They are attempting to placate fears of too much concentration by floating the idea of operating CTV and CityTV seperately, but how long would that really last? One company running competing stations in the same cities?

As CBC points out, this will leave Canadian media dominated by only 2 companies. CanWest Global and Bell Globemedia. How long until we see CanBell GlobalMedia?
