CTV News Calgary is southern Alberta's trusted source for local breaking news and weather and our legacy of news innovation and community involvement continues as we celebrate nearly 60 years in broadcasting.

On September 9, 1960, CTV News Calgary (CFCN) went on the air for the first time and was the first independent television station in Canada.

The first broadcast was a 30-minute news program, followed by two movies, bringing then owner H. Gordon Love’s life-long dream to reality.

CFCN became a member of the Canadian Television Network (CTV) in October 1961 and one of the station’s longest running shows, The Buck Shot Show, started in 1967.
