As It Happens

KSFC: Monday-Friday 8pm-9pm
  • Hosted by Carol Off and Jeff Douglas

Book your ears on a nightly 'round-the-world trip with As it Happens. From conversations with news makers to up-close and personal accounts of the unusual and unexpected, hosts Carol Off and Jeff Douglas bring you the stories behind the stories of the day.

As it Happens gets its stories from "the horse's mouth" - securing interviews with world leaders, rabble-rousers and deposed dictators. The show has a soft-spot for "characters" and never turns its nose up at something wild, weird or wacky.
