On CBC’s The National Tonight re Jian Ghomeshi Replacement

Dear Reader,

I had the pleasure of a conversation today with reporter Ioanna Roumeliotis of CBC TV’s The National, who had some questions about the impending rebrand of Q, the show vacated by Jian Ghomeshi.

A new host, rapper Shad, was named today.

You can watch the story (which includes my very short interview) here (the location of this link may change over time)  The story starts at the 40:30 mark of The National as broadcast on March 11.

**What do you think??  How will the show fare with the new host?  Was it a good move to keep the name Q, or should they have changed it?**

    Frankly I don’t care. The few times that I watched the other bloke, I found him ill-prepared, self centred, scattered in his preparation and possessed poor elocution.

  2. D Cox says:

    I don’t think Jian damaged the Q show itself. For me it is the guests that matter.

    • Coin says:

      I agree. If the great guests show up, the show will succeed. That is a function of a number of things, very much including the host, but I agree that Jian ruined his own brand, not that of Q. Thanks for the comment – Andris.
