The Biography Channel
City (also City Television; formerly known as Citytv) is a Canadian English language private television network owned and operated by Rogers Communications under its Rogers Broadcasting Ltd. division. It is Canada's third most-watched television network after CTV and Global consisting of seven owned and operated television stations located in the metropolitan areas of Toronto, Montreal, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, and the province of Saskatchewan, as well as three independently owned affiliates serving smaller cities in Alberta and British Columbia. The Citytv brand has also been licensed to television stations outside of Canada.
City stations originally had an intensely local format based on newscasts aimed at younger viewers, nightly movies, and music and cultural programming. Moses Znaimer, who developed the original format, once described the system's philosophy by saying, "It's not the show, it's the flow". Since the 2000s, and particularly since its acquisition by Rogers, City has expanded its national reach and has moved towards a series-based primetime schedule much like its competitors, albeit one still focused on younger demographics.
The original City station, granted callsign CITY-TV by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), was awarded in Toronto on November 25, 1971 as Citytv and began broadcasting for the first time on September 28, 1972 under the ownership of Channel Seventy-Nine Ltd. with its studios was located at 99 Queen Street East near Church Street. The station was in debt by 1975. Multiple Access Ltd. (the owners of CFCF in Montreal) purchased 45% of the station, and sold its stake to CHUM Limited three years later. CHUM Limited acquired the station in 1981. Broadcasting on UHF channel 79 through its first decade, the station moved to channel 57 in 1983, until moving to UHF 44 with the digital switchover. In 1987, the station moved its headquarters to 299 Queen Street West, formerly known as the Ryerson Press Building (then known as the CHUM-City Building); one of the most recognizable landmarks in the city. On September 8, 2009, Citytv moved to its current location at Yonge-Dundas Square at 33 Dundas Street East.
Citytv gained a second station in Vancouver when CHUM bought CKVU from Canwest Global in 2001. The station became Citytv Vancouver on July 22, 2002. Prior to CHUM's acquisition of CKVU, some Citytv programming was syndicated to KVOS in nearby Bellingham, Washington.
In 2004, CHUM bought Craig Media Inc., parent of the A-Channel system in Manitoba and Alberta. The Craig-owned A-Channel stations were relaunched as Citytv on August 2, 2005; the same date when CHUM's NewNet (The New VR, The New WI, the New PL, etc.) stations were rebranded under the A-Channel banner.
CHUM Limited announced plans to sell its broadcasting assets to CTV parent CTVglobemedia on July 12, 2006. CTVgm intended to retain CHUM's Citytv system while divesting CHUM's A-Channel stations and Access Alberta to get the CRTC to approve the acquisition. On the same day that the takeover was announced, Citytv cancelled its supper hour, late night, and weekend newscasts at its local Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary and Winnipeg stations, laying off hundreds of news department staff.
In October 2006, Citytv launched a daily national newscast, CityNews International. It is produced in Toronto for broadcast on the western Canadian stations and on CHUM's Toronto news channel CP24. The Edmonton and Calgary stations also began broadcasting a daily 30-minute magazine show, Your City, instead of a full-fledged newscast. The Vancouver news operation, which had operated for 30 years under various owners and station identities, was not maintained aside from BT. In the same month, Citytv Toronto began broadcasting local news in high-definition, becoming the first television station in Canada to do so.
The following year on June 8, the CRTC approved the CTV takeover of CHUM. However, the CRTC made the deal conditional on CTV divesting itself of Citytv, because there were already CTV owned and operated stations serving the same cities (CFTO Toronto, CIVT Vancouver, CFCN Calgary, CFRN Edmonton, and CKY Winnipeg). Without the divestment, CTV would have exceeded the CRTC's concentration of media ownership limits. CTV announced on June 11, 2007, that it would retain the A-Channel stations, and sell the Citytv stations to Rogers Communications for $375 million. The transaction was approved by the CRTC on September 28 and was completed on October 31, 2007.
The Citytv system began to phase in a modified branding in October 2012, with a new logo consisting only of the name "City", and some promotions using the verbal branding "City Television" instead of Citytv. The change marks the first major alteration to the Citytv brand since its introduction in 1972. The new City branding was launched on December 31, 2012 during its New Year's Eve special.
Expanding into a national footprint 
The Jim Pattison Group announced in July 2009 that its three television stations in western Canada (CKPG, CFJC, and CHAT), formerly affiliated with E!, would broadcast the entire Citytv program lineup starting on September 1, 2009. These stations do not carry the City branding; instead, they continue to use the same names and logos they used as affiliates of the E! system. The Pattison-owned Citytv affiliates produce local newscasts, but do not produce their own versions of Breakfast Television nor title their midday and evening newscasts under the CityNews brand like the City owned and operated stations do. The agreement was to run through August 2012, however Rogers signed a long-term affiliation renewal agreement on May 3, 2012. This allows the Pattison stations to carry 90% of primetime programming and the majority of morning and daytime programming from the programming grid of CKVU-DT, including simulcasts of the Vancouver edition of Breakfast Television. Unlike CKVU, the Pattison stations will continue to produce midday and evening local newscasts.
Meanwhile on December 20, 2011, Bluepoint Investment Corporation announced an affiliation agreement with Rogers Communications to air Citytv programming on the Saskatchewan Communications Network (SCN) from 3 p.m.-6 a.m. CT daily, as of January 2, 2012. This block of programming followed the national program grid of Citytv and was known on-air as Citytv on SCN. Shortly after, on January 17, 2012, Rogers announced its intent to acquire SCN from Bluepoint Investment Corporation. The deal gave the Citytv system stations in all provinces west of Quebec and south of the federal territories of Northern Canada. The sale was approved in late June 2012 by the CRTC and Rogers relaunched SCN as Citytv Saskatchewan on July 1. Rogers plans to invest in the station's infrastructure, and also launch a high definition feed.
In Montreal, Rogers announced its intent to acquire multicultural station CJNT-DT from Toronto-based Channel Zero on May 3, 2012 and announced an affiliation agreement with the station, effective June 4, 2012. This gave Citytv stations in all provinces west of Atlantic Canada as well as the system's first television station located east of the Greater Toronto Area. On December 20, 2012, the CRTC approved the acquisition of CJNT and Rogers' request to convert the station from multicultural to a conventional English-language station. The station began carrying the full City schedule on February 4, 2013. Rogers will produce 15.5 hours of local programming a week for CJNT (including a local edition of Breakfast Television), and will contribute funding and programming to a new independent multicultural station in Montreal.
City is well known for its unconventional approach to news and local programming. There is no news desk (anchors read the news standing up, or on stools), and cameras are sometimes hand-held. Citytv also pioneered the concept of videojournalism, where reporters often carry their own cameras and report and videotape their own stories. Citytv calls its videojournalists "videographers", but unlike many American television markets that try to conceal the fact that reporters are so-called "one-man bands", Citytv embraced the use of video journalism by highlighting the use of technology; Citytv videographers often carry a second home video camera to record images of them videotaping on the scene. The low-grade video is then incorporated into the final story to show viewers how the story was recorded.
At one time, City Toronto produced more local programs than any other television station in Canada, and more local programming than any other station in North America other than WCVB Boston. Citytv produced shows such as Speakers' Corner, CityLine and was the original home of FashionTelevision, SexTV, and MediaTelevision. Citytv also airs The Quon Dynasty, a reality restaurant show based in Edmonton, AB. Many of these series were not strictly focused on Toronto – FT, for instance, consists largely of foreign runway footage – and are easily syndicated to other outlets. The latter three shows are owned by CTVglobemedia as a result of its takeover of CHUM and subsequent divesting of the City stations.
The station also attracted attention and controversy by airing Baby Blue Movies, or soft-core pornography, on Friday nights after midnight. Although this programming strategy was discontinued in the 1980s, it was reinstated on CITY and CKVU for short time in the early 2000s.
Citytv was one of the first television stations in Canada to implement a diversity policy in hiring its on-air staff, actively seeking out people of colour, people with disabilities, and other minority groups to work as on-air journalists. Znaimer originally described the policy as wanting the station to "look like Toronto".
Beginning in 1983, Citytv began to produce a New Year's Eve special live from Nathan Phillips Square in Downtown Toronto. Currently known as the Citytv New Year's Eve Bash, the yearly concert special will expand to include a second event in Calgary, Alberta for its 2012 edition.
In 2008, City dropped its Great Movies block and replaced it with either reruns, reality shows or infomercials.
City Toronto's CityNews, formerly known as CityPulse, had developed a large following. Other stations around the world have imitateed its format to varying degrees of success. However, Citytv itself was unsuccessful in expanding its audience to other Canadian markets, as evidenced by the eventual cancellation of the other stations' traditional newscasts. Flagship station CITY-TV, along with Jim Pattison Group-owned affiliates CFJC-TV, CKPG-TV and CHAT-TV are the only City stations producing midday or evening newscasts (though the Pattison stations brand by their individual callsigns, instead of branding under the City name and do not the CityNews title for their weekday newscasts), City's four other owned-and-operated broadcast stations only produce localized versions of the morning program franchise Breakfast Television.
Effects of the 2009–2010 economic crisis 
Due to the ongoing structural problems facing the conventional television sector in Canada and the global economic crisis, Rogers Media announced cost-cutting measures at the City stations on January 19, 2010, which included massive layoffs and the cancellation of the following newscasts:
- CityNews at Noon in Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto
- Lunch Television in Vancouver
- Your City in Calgary and Edmonton which was an evening replacement for previous CityNews programming that was cancelled in 2006.
- The CityNews List in Vancouver, a comedic take on the news in Vancouver
- CityOnline, CityNews at Five and all weekend news programming in Toronto (the latter two were restored in 2011)
- City's national and international newscast, CityNews International
City continues to produce Breakfast Television and CityLine for all markets, and CityNews at Six and CityNews Tonight in Toronto only (the evening newscasts in Toronto excluded weekend broadcasts until March 2011; the 5 p.m. newscast, meanwhile, would return in September 2011). In total, 60 Citytv employees (including long-time Toronto news anchor Anne Mroczkowski) were laid off across Canada.
National broadcasts 
Sports broadcasts on the City stations have been sparse over the years, with the predominant sports property in recent years being National Football League football.
Craig Media (then-owners of the current Citytv stations in Winnipeg and Alberta) owned the rights to Monday Night Football in the early 2000s, and these rights moved to Citytv for MNF's final season on ABC in 2005, before being moved again to TSN in 2006. Following the sale to Rogers, CKVU carried Sunday afternoon "late window" (4:00/4:15 p.m. ET, 1:00/1:15 p.m. PT) games during the 2007 season (as did OMNI.2 in Toronto), under sublicence from Sportsnet. Since the 2008 season, all Citytv stations have carried Sunday late-window games. The local Sportsnet channel carries a different game than the game broadcast locally by Citytv.
On September 11, 2012, Citytv carried its first-ever national soccer broadcast, a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification group-stage match between Canada and Panama, simulcast with Sportsnet One. It has also broadcast supplementary coverage of two tennis events primarily broadcast by the Sportsnet channels: the 2012 Rogers Cup and the 2012 Davis Cup World Group Play-off between Canada and South Africa.
Local/regional broadcasts 
- In addition to NFL regular-season games, CITY also airs selected Buffalo Bills preseason games (including those held at the Rogers Centre).
- The City stations in Alberta (while still branded "A-Channel") carried some regional NHL games during their first few years of operation. More recently they occasionally carried regional broadcasts in the event of conflicts with other Sportsnet programming (Sportsnet West being the regional rightsholder to both the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames), most recently in December 2009. Similarly, Citytv Vancouver carried two regional Vancouver Canucks broadcasts during the 2009-10 season, again due to programming conflicts on Sportsnet Pacific. However, this practice has since been deprecated in favour of using the Sportsnet One regional feeds.
- City Toronto broadcast some regular-season basketball games during the inaugural season of the Toronto Raptors.
- On March 2, 2008, City Toronto aired its first known baseball game, a Toronto Blue Jays spring training game, against the Cincinnati Reds. The Blue Jays, like City, is owned by Rogers.
- City Vancouver has occasionally carried broadcasts of Major League Soccer's Vancouver Whitecaps FC as part of Sportsnet's regional broadcast deal with the team.
CityNews Channel 
Shortly after Rogers' takeover of the City stations was complete, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission published an application under which Rogers would have acquired 20% of CP24, which was sold to CTVglobemedia as part of its $1.4 billion takeover offer of CHUM Limited in 2007. It is not clear from the available evidence whether this was directly tied to the sale of CHUM as opposed to any pre-existing rights Rogers may have had. In any event, the application was withdrawn prior to the scheduled hearing.
In July 2008, Rogers filed a new application with the CRTC to launch a separate 24-hour news station to be known as "CityNews Toronto". That application was approved by the CRTC on December 10 of that year. The new channel was scheduled to begin broadcasting in late 2009, but was delayed for financial reasons.
On May 30, 2011 Rogers announced plans to launch CityNews Channel in the fall of that year which would incorporate elements of other Rogers-owned news properties including 680 News and Maclean's, in addition to Citytv Toronto. The channel was launched on October 3, 2011 on Rogers Cable systems in the Toronto and Ottawa markets.
City stations 
Individual stations are normally branded on-air as "City"; the location may be added if disambiguation is necessary. Prior to rebranding, it was referred to as "Citytv". The list also shows what stations had owned by either CHUM Ltd. or Rogers depending on affiliation.

|Portage la Prairie/Winnipeg, Manitoba||CHMI-DT||13.1 (13)||2005||2004||Former A-Channel station|
Prior to 1997, CHUM owned two television outlets in Atlantic Canada: the ATV system of CTV affiliates, and cable-only channel ASN. Many Citytv programs were aired on either ATV or ASN during this period. Both ATV and ASN were acquired by Baton Broadcasting (now CTVglobemedia) in 1997; ASN continued to air much of the Citytv schedule until it became part of the A (now CTV Two) television system in 2008. During that time, despite its early de facto affiliation with ASN, Atlantic Canada is now the largest gap in City's local coverage area, and there are few remaining realistic options for Rogers to purchase or affiliate with existing stations in the region. This had led Rogers to attempt, unsuccessfully, to request simultaneous substitution privileges for City Toronto on its cablesystems in New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador. Prior to the CRTC's decision to refuse the request, Rogers had hinted that a similar agreement had been tentatively reached with EastLink, the main cable provider in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
Other such gaps include parts of the B.C. interior and Northern Ontario. However, like most Canadian networks, Citytv stations are generally available as distant signals on most cable and satellite providers nationwide.
In the past, local rights to individual City programs were sold to stations outside of the Toronto station's coverage area. In Vancouver, programs were split between KVOS in Bellingham, Washington, which is close to Vancouver, and CTV-owned CIVT, during the 1990s and early 2000s when City did not have a station in Vancouver. The WIC stations in Alberta (including CITV and CICT) bought provincial rights to some City programs prior to the launch of CKAL and CKEM in 1997.
Affiliates and international franchises 
The City brand has been licensed to local television stations in Bogotá, Colombia and Barcelona, Spain. Toronto's CITY-DT is broadcast on a number of cable TV systems in the Caribbean. In Barbados, City is on channel 507 of the terrestrial subscription service known as Multi-Choice TV.

City HD 
In 2003, CHUM Limited launched an HD simulcast of its Toronto station CITY-TV. In October 2006, Citytv installed a new control room, becoming one of the first fully HD broadcasters in Canada. On March 2, 2010 CKVU-TV in Vancouver launched its HD simulcast. CKEM-DT in Edmonton began testing on May 26, 2010 and began regular HD broadcasting on June 29, 2010. CITY-DT-3 in Ottawa began testing on June 12, 2010 and regular broadcasting on June 18, 2010. CKAL-DT began testing on August 31, 2010. By August 31, 2011, all Citytv owned and operated stations had their primary transmitters and most retransmitters broadcasting exclusively in digital.
City HD is available nationally via satellite and on digital cable. It is also available for free over the air using a regular TV antenna and a digital tuner (included in most new TVs) via the following stations and retransmitters:
- Vancouver: 33 (10.1)
- Victoria: 27 (27.1)
