Shaw Communications operates a community channel, Shaw TV, in Prince George. Shaw also carries Vancouver CBC Television station CBUT-DT to all subscribers, following CKPG-TV's disaffiliation from the CBC network, which left the community with no local CBC Television transmitter, as well as Radio-Canada station CBUFT-DT, whose repeater closed down on July 31, 2012.

Publications[edit]

Prince George has two main newspapers. A daily, the Prince George Citizen,[1] winner of the 2006 Michener Award,[2] which appears Monday through Saturday and the Prince George Free Press which appears on Wednesday and Friday.
