Globe and Mail Update

CBC icon Don Newman has decided to take a retirement package.

A spokesman for the CBC, Jeff Keay, confirmed Saturday night that Mr. Newman, who currently hosts the Newsworld daily program Politics, has “opted for the voluntary retirement incentive.”

Employees had a deadline of Friday to decide. Mr. Keay could not say how Mr. Newman's decision might affect the program or when his decision takes effect.

Mr. Newman's varied career has included major events from the U.S. Watergate scandal to the Meech Lake and Charlottetown accords. He is one of the country's most respected journalists, a member of the Order of Canada and a winner of several prestigious awards.

I have always liked the intro: broooaaadcast. I also liked how he would cut people off randomly because "they were running out of time." Other than that, he's boring and I turn my TV off when I see him.

I also don't pay attention to the 5 pm political shows simply because I just don't have the time. Now, don't think I liked Duffy either. His political affiliations were good (like showing the Dion tape where he couldn't come up with an answer) but he talked so slowly and breathed so heavily.

I am not a big fan of Newman. But I did like how he cut people off over time. I liked the Duffster, but he was bad when it came to cutting people off. Crazy that two long time political host's, leave there job in such a short time of each other.

Tom Clark is good on CTV's PowerPlay. He does not put up with the rambling talking points all parties use.

I wonder who is going to take over Don's spot. I also wonder if PM Harper will give him a interview(I'm pretty sure Harper has not done a interview with Newman since he was elected PM).

I bet it is Susan Bonner, that takes over the Broooooaaadcast... :wink:

CBC confirms Don Newman's retirement..

One of the CBC's most eminent journalists, Don Newman, who currently hosts the daily Newsworld program Politics, has "opted for the voluntary retirement incentive."

In a message to CBC News, Newman said Sunday that "I will be doing Politics until the end of the season in June." He did not divulge any more details and said that he could not make any more comment on the matter.

i must say i have been less impressed with his coverage of politics in recent months and years . his coverage has drifted to the left and came with an anti-cpc tone in recent months . i can't say i'm too disappointed in hearing he is retiring .

To bad he is leaving. Anyone who replaces him will probably be far left where Don was only center left.

Someone should add a poll.

Don Newman's replacement will be:

centre left
far left
enviromental left

Suzan Bonnier or Keith Boag will most likely take his place.

He was alright, better than most on CBC.

Anyone but Keith Boag. I can't stand that guy, he has to be one of the most useless journalist in Canada.

Co-Sign.

Don really outed himself as a CPC hater during the Coalition coup. The sad thing is, that is the best you are going to get from CBC when it comes to politics..

the coalition experience was a low point of his career or coverage i really though , for someone who was so respected going into it , the coverage from him that came out of that crisis was nothing short of embarrassing .

Use the "Edit" link (upper left- looks like scissors cutting paper) on your original post starting this thread. Scroll down to the poll option and add a poll!

Anyone want to make suggestions of whose names should be in the poll, give JDot some feedback.

I don't think Susan Bonner will become the host even though I have seen that she fills in quite a bit when the old guy is away. Actually, my friend who actually watches this show said that a guy named Chris Hall has filled in before and he's a breath of fresh air from the older, boring political hosts (i.e. Newman, Duffy, Oliver).

I threw away my vote on Adler. I don't always agree with him but Chuck is fun... and the odds of him getting a job with the CBC are about equal to mine... NIL!
