Global News At Noon Didn't Air On Tuesday

For the first time I can remember on a non-holiday weekday, Global's noon newscast didn't air on Tuesday. It was replaced with an old Susan Hay special. The newscast was on the day before. Anyone know what happened?

I wondered the same thing. Technical glitch?

Bad time for this as anyone with a twitchy trigger finger, using Ken Shaw's absence as a motivator, wouldn't have found Global News waiting for their eyes and ears.

Their Facebook, Twitter and website have nothing about it.

Makes me wonder if there are changes afoot at the network. I remember being called into a giant meeting a long time ago on a day our own noon news didn't air, only to have upper management tell everyone about the "changes" that were coming. That was code for layoffs. 

I'm sure that's not the case here, but it certainly is strange that the show was suddenly preempted and there are no listings either online or in print for the program that wound up taking its place. Hopefully, there's a simpler amd far more innocent explanation for it.

Yes. Global Toronto's noon news is expected to return tomorrow.
