Peter Mansbridge says he will retire from The National


This next year
will mark 30 years since I was named
chief correspondent and anchor
ofThe National,a position that’s an honour
and a privilege to occupy. It’s been an amazing time
to report our history, but I’ve decided that this year
will be my last one. I’ve let theCBCknow
that I’d like to step down
fromThe National
next July 1st:
shortly after anchoring our very
special Canada Day coverage for 2017. As someone who believes strongly
in public broadcasting, leaving theCBC’sflagship
will not be easy;
but what’s important is that
The National
of the future
will continue
to reflect our world, our country,
and our people. There will be more to say about
the future in the days to come, but now it’s time to focus
on the new season; and here atThe National,
we will be doing just that.

  1. Damn, I grew up with this guy in my living room. He's been the face of CBC news since I could begin to understand the news at all…!

  2. For the last 10 years, I have been continuously listening to you for an impartial & ethical viewpoint on Canada and the world.
    Thank you, Mr. Mansbridge. I hope you become our next Governor General
    PS: I hope Mark Kelly take over after you

  3. i worked for a private company and dealt with him personally a few times and a gentleman. definitely earned his respect …. from most people

    I don't read replies, don't bother sending them. This is only a comment section, not a forum for snide debate. sorry to the remaining civilized people

  4. He has done a satisfactory very often a good job.Its time CBC had a team of news presenters.Talkin about changes for the public good,How about a newshour on YouTube like PBS has?

  5. Congratulations, sir on your long and successful career. Whoever takes your place will have big shoes indeed to fill.
    BUT …does that mean Peter Moosebridge is retiring from Zootopia News? 😉

  6. This guy could read any story on his teleprompter and turn it BORING. Also he loved to rub elbows with the rich and famous a bit too much for my taste. Bilderberg anyone?

  7. Well out with the old and in with colour, the new Canada!!. I will miss peter i grew up watching him. Big shoes to fill. i will bet a woman or a person of colour will fill in. Not the most qualified but political qualified.

  8. CBC SHOULD BE SOLD ASP AND ANY MONEY MADE SHOULD BE GIVEN BACK TO TAX PAYERS NOT THE GRUBBY LEFT WING PARASITES THAT HAVE STOLEN OVER 25 BILLION CANADIAN FROM TAX PAYERS TO SUPPORT THIS ALBATROSS

  9. Good riddance. Don't let the door hit you on the @$$ … then again yeah, let it ! Socialist, leftist, Trudeau @$$ kissing s.o.b. And GET RID OF PRAVDA a.k.a. CBC !

  10. Canadians pay a BILLION a year to prop up the CBC !  YOUR money, and they pay Mansbridge 1.1 million a year with bonuses for being CBC's head cheerleader for the Liberal party.  The CBC goes to court to hide and keep these numbers from the public in court injunction after court injunction. Sickening.
