TORONTO (June 25, 2014) Business News Network (BNN) - Canada’s only television channel devoted exclusively to business and financial news – today announced its expansion into the delivery of breaking business and financial news updates on Canadian radio. The extension into radio follows BNN’s new production agreement with Orbyt Media, Canada’s premier radio content syndication group. Beginning Wednesday, July 2, Canadians can tune their radio dials to catch BNN’s up-to-the-minute market updates and financial analysis in syndication on participating radio stations in British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Québec, and Saskatchewan.

 

The business briefs are slated to air every hour from 5 a.m. local time into the evening, providing listeners with easy-to-understand snapshots of global markets and breakout stock performers, while providing a glance at the latest developments throughout the day.

 

“As Canada’s only television service dedicated to delivering business and financial news, BNN is delighted to expand its reach to radio listeners across the country,” said Jack Fleishmann, General Manager, BNN. “A presence across national radio stations provides another avenue for audiences to receive the most up-to-date financial news, insight, and analysis, allowing BNN to help listeners stay well-informed, both at home and on-the-go.”

 

“We are extremely excited with the addition of BNN news updates to some of Canada’s most listened to radio stations,” said Chris Gordon, President, Bell Media Radio and Local TV. “Bringing segments of BNN’s first class business news to our existing programming slate is a mutually beneficial collaboration for both our stations and our listeners.”
