The NewMusic is no more.

Bummer.

You can blame the internet, you can blame media concentration, and you can blame the CRTC to some extent as well. Regardless, it's a shame such a great piece of music journalism has come to an end after a nearly 30 year run.

Now, if we could only get Denise Donlon (former NewMusic host and current head of CBC Radio) to put some pressure on her CBC TV colleagues and figure out a way to bring the program back through the public broadcaster.

What say you CBC?

that show was one of the few instances of the mainstream media paying attention to alternative music and good music journalism. seems a shame. not just for the music scene, but for cultural diversity in general in the canadian media.
