You may gloat:
A shrinking CBC is looking to sell its outsized downtown flagship headquarters in order to cut costs.
But it’s not totally jumping ship — the public broadcaster hopes to stay on as a tenant.
Fred Mattocks, general manager for media operations and technology at CBC English services, said the building has outgrown the broadcaster, whose staff and budget have shrivelled considerably over the years.
In its heyday, the building held about 5,000 staff, Mattocks said. Now, it holds just half that.
Executives have talked for a little while about selling the landmark Front St. headquarters, built for the broadcaster in 1992.
