CTV News is the news division of the CTV Television Network in Canada. The name CTV News is also applied as the title of local and regional newscasts on the network's owned-and-operated stations, which are closely tied to the national news division.


National programs

CTV News (the national news organization) produces the following national programs:

CTV News also operates the national 24-hour news channel CTV News Channel and the 24-hour national business news channel Business News Network, both of which are available across Canada on cable and satellite, as well as the regional 24-hour news channel CablePulse 24 in Toronto.

Local programs

Local programs use the title CTV News on the air. In most markets, local CTV News programs air at noon, 6 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. on weekdays, as well as local news updates during Canada AM, and at 6 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. on weekends.

National aggregate ratings published by BBM Canada refer to the local broadcasts collectively as CTV Evening News, CTV Late News, CTV Noon News, etc. Since most CTV affiliates are owned by the network, CTV offers the opportunity to buy national ads on local programming across its O&Os, making these aggregate ratings useful for advertisers.

Local CTV News programs are produced in the following markets:

CTV O&Os in smaller markets air a newscast produced in one of the larger markets noted above, although some may also produce a shorter local news insert aired during a break in the main market's program.

CTV's private affiliates in Lloydminster and Thunder Bay produce their own local newscasts, which are not branded as CTV News, although they do air CTV's national news programming. One American station, WZRA in Oldsmar, Florida, also carries Canada AM and CTV National News.

CTVglobemedia also owns CablePulse 24 (CP24), a local 24-hour news channel based in Toronto which is available across Southern Ontario via cable and across Canada via satellite. The channel does currently air a simulcast of CFTO-TV's CTV News at 6 and CTV News at 11:30.
