CKLT-DT is the CTV owned-and-operated television station in Saint John, New Brunswick. It broadcasts a high-definition digital signal on VHF channel 9 from a transmitter located near Whitaker Lake in Petersville and also operates rebroadcast transmitters in Woodstock and Boiestown.

Owned by Bell Media, it is part of the CTV Atlantic regional system in the Canadian Maritimes. Although separately licensed, the station (along with its two rebroadcasters) is considered a full-time satellite of CKCW-DT in Moncton. Its studios are located on Smythe Street in Saint John, though nearly all operations are handled at CKCW's studios on Halifax and George Streets in Moncton. This station can also be seen on Rogers Cable channel 8 and Bell Aliant TV channel 6. There is a high definition feed offered on Rogers Cable digital channel 518. CKLT was the CTV Atlantic station carried by Bell TV until 2011.

Its programming is the same as that of CTV Atlantic flagship CJCH-DT in Halifax, with commercials provided from Moncton.

History[edit]

CKLT signed on for the first time on September 21, 1969, owned by Moncton Broadcasting along with CKCW-TV. As part of a complex realignment of television affiliations in the Maritimes, Saint John's original station, CHSJ-TV (now CBAT-TV) set up a translator in Moncton, enabling CKCW-TV to switch to CTV. CHUM Limited bought CKCW-TV and CKLT-TV in 1972 and merged them into the Atlantic Television System (ATV) later that year. Along with the rest of the ATV stations, it was sold to Baton Broadcasting in 1997, enabling Baton to take control of CTV.
