Background[edit]

As one of the youngest terrestrial television stations in the Philippines, it was created when Philippine Congress granted a franchise under Republic Act No. 8219 on September 12, 1997 and duly licensed by the NTC dated January 10, 2007.

It was launched on March 19, 2007. In 2008, CLTV 36 relegated into an all-news and infotainment channel. It was on the same year that the station received the first KBP Golden Dove Award (Sonia Soto - Best Provincial Public Affairs Program Host). From 2007, CLTV 36 pioneered the extensive and most updated coverage of national and local elections and natural disasters that hit the region including typhoons, northeast monsoon, among others. In 2013, CLTV 36 launched their entertainment programming thru the StarMill Talent Search.

CLTV 36 Metro Central Luzon focuses on a centralized media coverage from news, public affairs and entertainment programming, covering all the provinces of Metro Central Luzon. These are the provinces of Nueva Ecija, Bulacan, Bataan, Tarlac, Zambales, Aurora and its homebase, Pampanga. CLTV 36 can also be seen in some areas in Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Ilocos Region, and Cordillera Administrative Region thru a better, wider, crisp and stronger signal reception from its transmitter in Clark Freeport Zone. The tower was inaugurated in December 9, 2015.

CLTV 36 Metro Central Luzon is the official broadcaster of the Giant Lantern Festival every December from 2008 and the United Central Luzon Athletic Association games since 2015.
