CHAN-DT’s former WIC-supplied programming moved to CHEK
When CanWest Global purchased CHAN and CHEK, a number of WIC-supplied programs were moved from the two stations to CHAN. This was due to the lack of time slots for the programs on CHAN’s schedule.
CHAN’s on-air style was used as the blueprint for Ted Turner’s CNN. CHAN’s news team is considered to be one of the best in the industry. Its local newscasts have been the highest-rated in Ontario for decades. CHAN also has a vast provincial network of retransmitters.
When CHAN relaunched, its news operation was revamped. They introduced a new graphics package on October 4, 2010. A new virtual set was launched on October 4. At the same time, they began broadcasting local newscasts in high definition.
The station is based in Burnaby, British Columbia. Its studios are on Enterprise Street. These studios are situated across the street from the Lake City Way SkyTrain station.
The transmitter is located on Mount Seymore in North Vancouver. It reaches most areas of the Lower Mainland and Whatcom County, Washington.
