CBC Radio 2 allowed to carry some advertising

Canada's federal broadcast regulator says it will allow some advertising on CBC's secondary radio French and English networks.

The change is included in the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission's decision to renew the CBC's licence, for both French and English-language television and radio stations, for the next five years.

The CBC had asked to be allowed unlimited advertising space on Radio 2, and its French-language equivalent Espace Musique, during the fourth year of the licence term.

The regulator instead gave a three-year window for advertising on the networks, on the condition that it not exceed more than four minutes per broadcast hour.

Hmm.  I've just started to notice ads on it.  They had been inserting various little clips of trivia and stuff for a bit, perhaps to ease into the ads.  Now I'm hearing a few ads every once in a while.  Too bad.
