1960–1963

CHAN 1960

CHAN-TV signed on in 1960 as Vancouver's first commercial television station. One year later, it joined the CTV Television Network, serving as a network flagship alongside CFTO-TV in Toronto.

1963–1973

CHAN 1963 logo

CHAN's "Channel 8" logo, introduced in 1963. Beginning in 1971, this logo was gradually phased out as the station's new branding of British Columbia Television (abbreviated to BCTV when that brand became official in 1973) was introduced.

CHAN 1963

The "6" here referred to its then-sister station in Victoria, CHEK-TV. This was used for common programming when in simulcast on the two stations.

1973–1994

BCTV 1973

This was the first logo of CHAN as BCTV. The name refers to the network of transmitters and repeaters that retransmitted the station's signal province-wide. The flower depicted in this logo is the Pacific dogwood, the official flower of British Columbia.

1994–2001

BCTV 1990's Logo

In 1994, the BCTV flower logo was simplified.

2001–2006

Global logo old

In 2000, WIC Western International Communications, the owner of BCTV, was sold to CanWest Global, which owned the Global Television Network and CKVU. CanWest chose to affiliate BCTV with Global and sell less-powerful CKVU. However, in order to honour contractual commitments related to the CTV affiliation, the switch to Global occurred on September 1, 2001, the day when the contract expired. On that day, CHAN retired the BCTV name and flower logo and became Global BC, though up to 2006 the local newscasts were still known as BCTV News on Global. CHAN's sister station CHEK also joined the CH network on that same day. CKVU went independent and was later sold to CHUM Limited.

2006–present

Globalbc

Global re-branded in 2006. At the same time, BCTV News was renamed Global News BC.
