CBC Radio One nationally aired programs
Many network programs that air across the country have their own contact forms on their show site. To contact a national show, click on the program name from the All Shows list on the CBC Radio site. Choose the show you want and use the Visit Show site hyperlink to get to the program's page. You can also type the program name directly into the address bar of your browser as so: www.cbc.ca/radio/[programname]
We know that not every show has a public e-mail or contact form, and in those cases we ask that you share your message with us and we’ll pass it along on your behalf.
Note: You can listen on-demand to segments from most programs that have aired on CBC Radio One via the Listen site. Click on On Demand and then All Shows to find the program you are looking for.

Music Submissions for broadcast on CBC radio platforms
If you are a musician and wish to submit songs for airplay on CBC networks, send them to the CBC Music Library by email to email@example.com
If you wish, you may indicate the specific program for preferred play in the subject line of your email as follows: "Attention: [program name]"
Attach to your email the following to the Music Library
1. Digital file (WAV format preferred) or downloadable links with album art and liner notes that list artist, composer and production credits
2. Artist biography and/or media kit with contact information
Once the Library receives your submission, it will be reviewed for possible future programming on all relevant programs/platforms. Your submission will also be made available to all CBC Music producers.
* Please note that the exclusive purpose of the email firstname.lastname@example.org is to receive submitted music for consideration on CBC Radio platforms. The account will not reply to request for radio play or questions/comments concerning radio play. If you have a question about a song heard on CBC, please contact CBC National Client Services.
