CBC Windsor held an open house Saturday and welcomed Windsorites to try their hand at the business of daily broadcasts.

In the front of the house, reporter Bob Steele shared the magic of Canada-wide audio mixing  and news anchor Susan Pedler helped visitors test-drive the news desk and teleprompters.

Back in the recording studios, Tony Doucet cued up the “earlyshift” radio show with a studio full of fans,  while Lise LeBoeuf encouraged some francophone participation on Radio Canada.

Out in the exterior bay weather specialist Sarah Elliot cheered on a sunny weather update. All around the station a supporting cast of artists and technicians shared the real work needed to make the magic happen.

Hundreds of folks from across the Windsor-Essex region came down to the station and tried out the equipment!
