Curling is returning to CBC.

As part of a new partnership, CBC will join forces with Sportsnet to broadcast the Grand Slam of Curling, Jeffrey Orridge, executive director of sports properties for CBC English services, announced on Thursday.

“We’re happy to be partnering with Rogers,” said Orridge. “This is great news for curling fans across the country; we are excited to continue to bring them the action of Grand Slam Curling.”

The Grand Slam series begins with The Masters in Brantford, Ont., from Nov. 14-18.

The CBC has had a long history with the sport of curling, providing Canadians with expert coverage for the last 50 years.
