CONTACT: Melinda Ward, PRI,


MINNEAPOLIS, October 26, 2014 — PRI learned on Sunday, October 26 from the CBC that they have ended their relationship with Jian Ghomeshi, host of the program “Q.” CBC will continue to produce, and PRI will continue to distribute, the program with substitute hosts until a new host is brought on board.  

PRI has represented CBC programs in the U.S. for many years. We do not comment on other organization’s personnel decisions.  We look forward to working with the CBC as they plan for what is next for “Q.”
