CARAS Renews Juno Awards Deal With CBC

TORONTO (CelebrityAccess) — The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) announced that they've struck a long term deal with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation that will see the Juno Awards broadcast on the network for the next four years.

The 47th annual Juno Awards will be broadcast live on CBC from Rogers Arena on Sunday March 25, 2018, with JUNO Week celebrations running from March 19 through March 25, 2018.

“We are excited to embark on our partnership with the CBC. As our official broadcaster, their vision to wrap themselves with ongoing JUNO programming throughout the year, aligns with our continued efforts to elevate the JUNO experience engaging Canadians from coast to coast to coast,” said Allan Reid, President & CEO, CARAS/The JUNO Awards and MusiCounts. “As we look forward to this new chapter, we also want to thank CTV for their extensive support over the past 16 years. They have been an invaluable partner in growing the JUNOS to the national celebration that we know today.”

Additionally, as a part of the deal, the CBC will develop new music programming and special events throughout the year in partnership with CARAS, including covering a more diverse range of genres and musicians and investing in educational programs to foster artist development.
