Back in 2002, I was involved in the initial development of CBC Radio 3’s now-infamous online magazine. The site featured Canadian independent music and culture in a fullscreen broadband experience. A new 100 page magazine was created every week for over 100 issues.
Radio 3’s magazine received accolades from around the world including an Art Director’s Award and a Webby Award in 2003. The site was sadly shutdown in 2004 after CBC Radio execs exclaimed ‘We’re a Radio department, let’s make radio, not internet!’. It was clearly time to move on.
All 101 issues of the Radio 3 magazine are accessible from this CBCradio3 Archive
