Showcasing CBC’s commitment to Canada’s communities, CBC HAMILTON, now available at CBC.ca/Hamilton, is a new digital service that provides a robust, up-to-date experience with content specific to the residents of Hamilton and the city’s neighbourhoods. It is one of five new local services being rolled out as part of CBC’s Strategy 2015: Every One, Every Way.
CBC.ca/Hamilton provides an in-depth, community-focused experience for Hamilton residents, catering to the needs of each individual user. The service has the content Hamiltonians want—from local news, traffic alerts and weather to things to do and conversations with the community about the issues that matter to them.
Plus, using responsive-design technology, CBC.ca/Hamilton will adapt to your mobile phone or tablet and resize itself accordingly. And adding to the ease of use, the service will feature a “pinned” map of the city, acting as a physical representation of all of the stories and events happening in the various neighbourhoods.
CBC reporters Jessica Young, Samantha Craggs, Julia Chapman, well-known local journalist Paul Wilson and local bloggers will provide the content from CBC’s office located in the heart of the city’s art community.
The executive producer of CBC HAMILTON is Roger Gillespie and the producer is Conrad Collaco.
