CBC Lifts 7-second Delay for Cherry

After making some observations that were blown out of proportion by the CBC (also by having a track record of controversial comments) and it's subsequent decision to run the Coach's Corner on a 7 second delay, the CBC has decided to remove the delay for the upcoming NHL season.
Nancy Lee, executive producer of CBC Sports, said the seven-second tape delay is gone.

"It's a new contract," Lee said, referring to the new one-year deal CBC signed with Cherry nearly two weeks ago.
Now, unleashed, Coach Cherry can now focus on what's important - selling the game back to the NHL fans by using his unique personality and charm on a Canadian public. Can a unhindered Coach Cherry bring the fans back to the arenas and TVs? Time will only tell.
