daytime is a Canadian television talk show that has become one of the defining shows across the Rogers TV network of local community television stations.

Daytime (stylized daytime) covers a wide spectrum of topics in a 60-minute format, generally described as a local lifestyle show that highlights members of the community. Some of the topics and themes based from community access of the show range from food, cooking, home, decorating, shopping, fashion, health, fitness, entertainment and more.

Local editions[edit]

Each edition of daytime is divided and produced by region, as a means to allow members of each community local access. On-air broadcast is limited to the regions they are produced.
