CTV News


CTV News

CTV News is the news division of the CTV Television Network in Canada, and the name of the local and regional newscasts on the network's owned-and-operated stations.

National programs

CTV News produces the following national programs:

* "CTV National News", the nightly newscast anchored by Lloyd Robertson (weekdays) and Sandie Rinaldo (weekends);
* "Canada AM", a weekday morning news and entertainment program;
* "Good Morning Canada", a weekend morning program with rotating anchors;
* "W-FIVE", a weekly newsmagazine series;
* "Question Period", a weekly news and interview series.

CTV News also operates a 24-hour news channel, CTV Newsnet, and a 24-hour business news channel, Business News Network, both of which are available across Canada on cable and satellite.

Local programs

Local programs use the title "CTV News" on the air. In most markets, local CTV News programs air at noon, 6 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. on weekdays, as well as local news updates during "Canada AM", and at 6 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. on weekends.

National aggregate ratings are published by A. C. Nielsen under the name "CTV Evening News".

Local "CTV News" programs are produced in the following markets:

* Calgary (CFCN)
* Edmonton (CFRN)
* Greater Sudbury (CICI)
* Halifax (CJCH)
* Kitchener (CKCO)
* Montreal (CFCF)
* Ottawa (CJOH)
* Regina (CKCK)
* Saskatoon (CFQC)
* Toronto (CFTO)
* Vancouver (CIVT)
* Winnipeg (CKY)

CTV O&Os in smaller markets air a newscast produced in one of the larger markets noted above, although some may also produce a shorter local news insert aired during a break in the main market's program.

CTV's private affiliates in Lloydminster and Thunder Bay produce their own local newscasts, which are not branded as CTV News, although they do air CTV's national news programming. One American station, WZRA in Oldsmar, Florida, also carries "Canada AM" and "CTV National News".

In addition, CTVglobemedia owns, but does not currently program CablePulse 24 (CP24), a local 24-hour news channel based in Toronto which is available across Southern Ontario via cable and across Canada via satellite.
