Agreed, I have a hard time believing that CTV is #1. I know that global/BCTV held the #1 spot for years when Tony Parsons was still reading the news.Hambone wrote:Could've fooled me re: CTV. I keep forgetting they're even still on the air. Only time I've tuned into them in recent memory is when they happen to be showing an NFL game I'm interested in watching. Even then I'm not looking for CTV in the Shaw guide, just looking to see what games are on and picking the one I want regardless of station.David wrote:Not only is CTV the #1 TV news station in this market, it was also a major source of content surrounding the football club and the CFL. One more casualty to the omni-present internet for online content I suppose.
Of course, a whole Sports Dep't goes with this decision, so sympathies to them.
On the occasion that I do watch the news, usually once or twice a week, or during an important event like an election, I usually watch global.
I doubt that global will cut their sports department, considering they usually do provide significant coverage of lions news, and they advertise at Lions games.
I usually avoid watching CTV, even if they do have an interesting NFL game, I usually look for it on the American channels.
