CBC scraps its 4 host format for The National and nobody cares
Remember when CBC introduced their four-host format back in 2017? No? Well, of course you don't, because nobody cares. But according to reports, CBC is switching back to its two-host format — and some people are treating the story like it's breaking news.
That's right. Move over, Newfoundland — you might be recovering from a record-breaking snowstorm, but CBC is making a play for the top spot in this week's news.

Wonder how the 47 who watch will react?— Gene Valaitis (@genevalaitis) January 22, 2020

I’m sure the seven people that still actually watch The National will care deeply about this announcement.— Velveeta Elvis (@Velveetaelvis) January 22, 2020
One man thought CBC was trying to fix a gunshot wound with a Bandaid.
Yes, the new National sucks, but the problems go much deeper than having four hosts.— Bruce Hayes (@brucejameshayes) January 22, 2020
And another user had a few suggestions for CBC on that topic.
Let me know when CBC gets around to verified and provable facts and specific sources.— Vennell (@Tankingpriest) January 22, 2020
