Rogers is launching a new one-hour radio show called Maclean’s on the Hill on March 22. 

Maclean’s political journalists—Ottawa bureau chief John Geddes, political editor Paul Wells and associate editor Aaron Wherry—will give their take on the latest federal political news on Ottawa’s News1310 on Saturday at 10 a.m. and Sunday at 8 a.m. ET. The show will be hosted by Cormac MacSweeney, Parliament Hill reporter for CityNews.

The show will later be available as a podcast on Macleans.ca, CityNews.ca, 680News (Toronto), News1130 (Vancouver), 660News (Calgary), News95.7 (Halifax) and 570News (Kitchener).  

“We are extremely fortunate at Maclean’s to have the best and brightest team of political journalists in the country,” said Mark Stevenson, editor of Maclean’s, in a press release. “On Macleans.ca and on tablet and in print, they are already extremely well-read. Now, to be able to connect with audiences through our Rogers radio stations is an exciting expansion.”
