Is the song over for Hockey Night in Canada?

Jun 05, 2008 09:23 AM
Curtis Rush
STAFF REPORTER

Hockey Night in Canada’s signature theme song may have been heard for the final time on CBC last night, says the composer of the song dubbed “Canada’s second national anthem.”

The licence agreement to use the song expired with the final game of this year’s Stanley Cup playoffs, according to statements posted this week on the website hockeytheme.com

On the website, Copyright Music and Visuals president John Ciccone says CBC has advised his company, which controls use of the song, and composer Dolores Claman that it is not prepared to sign a new agreement.

Ciccone says CBC was offered a new deal on terms similar to those that existed for the past decade. The cost to the CBC, Ciccone said, amounts to about $500 per broadcast.

The Hockey Night in Canada song was composed by Claman in 1968 and has become one of the longest-running theme songs in broadcasting history.

"I am saddened by the decision of the CBC to drop the Hockey Night in Canada theme after our lengthy history together,” Claman said in a statement on the website.

“I nevertheless respect its right to move in a new direction."

Neither Claman nor Ciccone could be reached for comment this morning.

CBC spokeperson Jeff Keay said he could not immediately confirm details because the head of CBC sports, Scott Moore, was in transit from Pittsburgh, where the Detroit Red Wings beat the Penguins last night in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup final.

"I know we've been having discussions," Keay said.

That is indeed horrible news. But I suspect that there will be a backlash and CBC will have no choice but to bring back the theme song.

That was my ring tone for a very long time.

Based on that logic, Montreal is home

But I'm watching NBC, and it's from Detroit of course, and they too continuously broadcast "Cup comes Homes"

Are you going to the parade April? Have fun, if so - and bring some water, it's supposed to be a scorcher!

Seriously, if the CBC is not willing to pay $500 per airing of HNC for the theme song I may have to go down to headquarters and thump some skulls...

Considering the amount they make on ad revenues it seems like a drop in the bucket to me
