VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Rogers Media is expanding its local newscast “CityNews” to Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Montreal.

Local versions of the newscast will start airing in Edmonton and Winnipeg on September 4th. The newscasts head to Vancouver, Montreal and Calgary in winter 2018.

The broadcasts will include daily one-hour editions at 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. local time.

Rogers Media says sister brands such as Maclean’s Magazine, “Breakfast Television,” and Sportsnet could supply complementary stories to the broadcasts, which will include “regional and national perspectives.”

Rogers has City-branded television stations in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Montreal and Regina.

  1. Bringing back after cancelling them**

    Which is what will happen again after they try to find the cheapest possible talent to fill the anchor slots, which then tanks the ratings…

  2. Is City TV short on their CRTC-requirements for local programming hours? I would bet money that it’s 95% recycled content and not serious competition for the existing local evening newscasts. Just guessing from the way Rogers decimated BC’s ‘regional’ sports channel when they bought it from CTV. Might as well have renamed Sportsnet Pacific to Sportsnet Blue Jays
