Dispatches was a Canadian radio program, which aired Sunday evenings at 7:00 p.m. on CBC Radio One until being cancelled in April, 2012. The final show was broadcast in June, 2012. The program, which was hosted by Rick MacInnes-Rae, aired documentary reports on international news and feature topics. Its opening music was an excerpt from Mark Knopfler's song "What It Is."

In April 2007, the program expanded to a one-hour format, incorporating some features of CBC Radio's cancelled world music series Global Village.

On April 10, 2012, the CBC announced it would cancel the program as part of its budget cuts as a result of the 2012 Canadian federal budget.[1]

The last program aired on June 21, 2012 (repeated June 24).[2]
