Arsenault, Barton on new The National roster
Adrienne Arsenault, Rosemary Barton, Andrew Chang and Ian Hanomansing are the new hosts of “The National.” The public broadcaster unveiled the new team Tuesday, signalling the first step toward reshaping the flagship news program. Among the changes, the CBC now plans to air the newscast live across all six time zones from studios in Vancouver, Ottawa and Toronto. By going live in each time zone, the hosts will be able to track developing stories in real time. The CBC says the revamped show will build a more collaborative effort between the hosts, who will also continue to report their own stories.
