CBC to Aarti Pole: Just Sit There and Wait

CBC News Winnipeg didn’t quite start the way it normally does on Tuesday. Reporter Aarti Pole appeared at 5 p.m. to go live on a story a few moments later, but was already live right off the bat for nearly an entire minute.

CBC then cut to its local Saskatchewan feed, before going back again to Aarti.

If you listen closely, you can hear someone in the background say, “Are we on the air?”

Yep, you’re on the air!
