In 1997, CKVU became part of the Global Television Network. Instead of using individual station brands, Global owner Canwest chose to use the generic Global brand for all of its stations, including CKVU.
In 2001, CKVU was branded as Citytv after CITY-TV, thus kicking off the Citytv network.
Citytv became simply City in December 2012.
1 CHBC and CHKL carry separate evening newscasts (local and provincial respectively), but identical programming otherwise.
