CityNews Toronto has existed forever, CityNews used to exist in other places, but then the 2010 crisis hit.

 

Since then, CityNews is back in Edmonton and Winnipeg.

 

And now, starting September 3rd, the City is back in the News for Calgary, Montreal and Vancouver viewers. Same times as the EDM and WPG ones.

In Australia, WIN Tasmania is moving the production of its regional news to the mainland -- and eliminating all weekend regional newscasts. This is how ABC Tasmania reported on the development:

Congrats to CKMI Global Montreal's Jamie Orchard. She has been there since the beginning in 1997 (CKMI gained Global from CBC) and has anchored the Global Montreal Newshour since 2001. She's pretty much become a recognizable face in the Montreal market, alongside CFCF's Mutsumi Takahashi (who's been there since 1982).

 

Now, she's their assistant news director. She'll be managing their station's on-air and online teams and yes, she'll continue to anchor the weeknight news at 5:30, 6:00 and 11:00 p.m.

 

For someone who's been there since the beginning of Global Television in Montreal, I'm not surprised to hear this news. Well deserved to Jamie.

Actually, Mits joined CFCF around 1982 as a reporter and became anchor in 1986.

Just watching "The Weekly" - which is a current affairs show hosted by Wendy Mesley on CBC (and presumably CBC News Network).  Wendy was the primary backup and dedicated Sunday evening anchor during the Peter Mansbridge-era of The National and led the show during the transition to the new format.

 

They've been on the air for a year now, using Studio 55 at the CBC - which is also known as the home of The National.  Here's a few caps/photos.

 

They change the colours around to suit their look (orange and teal vs. dark blue) which I am quite a fan of.  They also borrow the graphics from The National - albeit with a different colour for the font.

 

I've included a few photos from The National just for a comparison.

Some tragic news from Brazil: veteran journalist Ricardo Boechat dies in a chopper crash in São Paulo. He was 66 years old, and for the last 12, he anchored Rede Bandeirantes' flagship evening newscast.

Here's a farewell video from his colleagues at Bandeirantes:

Wait what?! CityPulse is getting a news chopper? I never saw that coming. It truly is the "little station that could."

 

(yes, CityPulse instead of CityNews because that's what Citytv was... covering The Pulse of Toronto, every night.)

Yeah, that's what I thought too. I found this particularly surprising considering that the news division was short on resources and revenue for a pretty long time...like for more than 15 years now.


I guess Rogers found some extra cash after gutting out some auxiliary staff, and in turn the last remains of a traditional news format after last year's reboot.

It's C-FNPQ, a R44 naturally. Former recent CIII-TV Global News chopper, as well as previously for sister Corus radio station AM640 CFMJ, and further back as CHCH's chopper. "Chopper 680" has been flying since the start of the month for the radio, now ready for the technical side of City. 

 

Port side has 680 News logos, while the Starboard side has the CityNews logos. Slowly getting back in the game City, sadly still without a pulse.

CITY-TV was never the same after they canceled "The 20 Minute Workout"...

 

That WAS The Pulse of the CITY.

You would think Everywhere! (pun intended) would be included there somewhere. Guess not.

Apparently, when Gord Martineau left CityNews after 39 years in 2016, it wasn't his choice to leave. Learned something new today.

This is from The Agenda with Steve Paikin on TVOntario (TVO) from 2017.
