A Sneak Peek of CBC PEI’s Renovated and Accessible Radio Studio

Renovations to the CBC building in Prince Edward Island are still in progress and the most recent part of the project is an accessible and relocated radio studio.

Now located at the entrance to the Charlottetown building, the new English radio studio will be the new home of Island morning and Main Street.

Renovation plans have been made public for the location at 430 University Ave. in 2018, but the timeline was delayed to secure a successful bidder, and then again during COVID-19.

The CBC PEI building had not been renovated since 1978. Here is an overview of the new studio.
