Local television station closes doors

A local media presence for over 50 years has closed its doors.

CTV quietly closed its doors today amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and the building it was housed in is up for lease. Officials say the three current employees, two reporters, and a commercial cameraman/operator will continue to provide news, from home.

Officials add that in the mid-’90s, the station used to, at one time, employ 55 people when it was known as MCTV.

In the early days of the station, owners Gerry Alger and Gerry Stanton ran it out of a studio in Callandar. Later, the station was bought by the Thomson Corporation in 1960, and it merged with the radio station CFCH.

Officials say the station switched hands multiple times over the decades before Bell purchased the station.
