CIVT was founded as an independent station called "Vancouver Television" owned by CTV's parent at that time, Baton.
Many CTV stations began to use the main CTV logo as their station branding between 2002 and 2005. CIVT was among the first to conduct such a manoeuvre, which occurred on July 1, 2002.
Starting in 2013, CTV O&O stations began adopting local branding again, adding city names to local newscasts. This is the logo as shown on the CTV Vancouver website header.
1 CHBC and CHKL carry separate evening newscasts (local and provincial respectively), but identical programming otherwise.
