CBC cancels On the Money

After just two years, the CBC pulled the plug on its afternoon business program On the Money this week, citing lack of funding. Hosted by Peter Armstrong, the daily CBC News Network show covered international economics, from trade disputes to low-cost airlines every weekday at 4 p.m. Its final broadcast will air on June 28, after which the network will move from a live broadcast model to intermittent live and recorded segments every half hour from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Armstrong has stated that he will remain with the CBC.
