End of the Hockey Night in Canada Theme?
Say it isn’t so! 680 News reports:
Toronto – The hockey song Canadians have been humming to since 1968 on the CBC, and is as recognizable as the national anthem, may be cancelled, according to reports.
The CBC has been paying $500 to the composer of the theme song every time it is played on Hockey Night in Canada, but the licensing agreement reportedly ended Wednesday night…
The CBC has reportedly told the composer that it’s no longer interested in paying the fee, and will move in another direction.
On the positive side, the Leafs haven’t won the Cup since this theme has been in use. Maybe this is our chance.
