Sunday Morning (radio program)

Sunday Morning (radio program)

"Sunday Morning" was a Canadian radio news and information program, which aired on CBC Radio One. The magazine style program was one of the highest budget shows on CBC Radio and featured documentaries, interviews, round table discussions, book reviews, arts reports, puzzles and various features including a weekly satirical song by Nancy White. The show was conceived by producer Mark Starowicz as a "Sunday New York Times" of the air" and was launched in 1976 with Bronwyn Drainie and Warner Troyer as hosts. The show was one of CBC Radio's highest rated programmes drawing 1.1 million listeners per week.

After being unsuccessfully revamped in 1995 and given a new host, Ian Brown, the series ended in 1997 after twenty years when CBC Radio merged "Sunday Morning" with "Morningside" to create the new morning series "This Morning".

Personalities associated with the show included Mary Lou Finlay, Barbara Smith, Linden MacIntyre, Stuart McLean, Nancy White, Elizabeth Gray and Bruce Dowbiggin.
