1) daily headline NEWS reports. These are max 3 minute NEWS updates that typically include 3 headlines and air in English and in French. You can choose to contribute daily, weekly or occasionally in either French or English. Here is a sample.

2) NEWS stories. These are 5-7 minute stories that report on a specific issue or event. These NEWS stories generally include research, interviews and a brief written summary. You can find the stories on the CHUO News tab..
