CBC News says it will reveal on Tuesday who will be hosting its flagship 10 p.m. show The National now that Peter Mansbridge, who has anchored the show for nearly 30 years, is stepping down.
At a Tuesday news conference in Toronto, CBC News general manager Jennifer McGuire will reveal the corporation’s plans for the future of the program.
Mansbridge stepped down from his role as anchor and chief correspondent earlier this month. CBC News has previously confirmed there will be more than one host.
The public broadcaster has been scouting candidates within and outside the organization to take over hosting duties. The revamped version of the show is slated to debut in mid-October.
