Southern Albertans look to CTV Calgary for excellence in news and entertainment programming and that legacy of news innovation and community involvement continues today as we celebrate over 50 years in broadcasting.

CTV Calgary (CFCN) went on the air for the first time on the evening of September 9, 1960 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) on October 1961 and one of the station’s longest running shows, The Buck Shot Show, started in 1967.

As an owned and operated affiliate of the CTV Network, CTV Calgary, created a number of firsts in Canadian television.

  • First to produce a Canadian Football League game from the prairies for CTV
  • Instituting instant replay in Western Canada
  • Brought Crime Stoppers to Calgary
  • Initiated Child Find on television

Canada’s largest telecommunications company, Bell Canada Enterprises, has owned CTV Calgary since 2000.
