Citytv, Toronto's fast-paced and image-driven independent television station, first went to air 28 September 1972 as a UHF channel.
Citytv is now a consistently top-ranked channel within what is perhaps North America's most competitive market (Toronto has 53 television stations).
However, Citytv's most notable distinction lies in a conceptual approach which consistently attempts to expand the mobility and function of the medium.

 1.06: The Sheer Force of Attitude
At MuchMusic, a production of Citytv, the whole operation is a set; there are no "studios." staffers there dare not argue with lovers too loudly on the phone or pick their noses behind their desks lest their actions serve as background for a VeeJay's throw.

Citytv's phone network can take 20,000 caller votes per hour and is used on MuchMusic for rock video contests and on CityPulse news to get viewer feedback on particular news or political events.

 Don't Change that Channel ... Change the Rules!
Starting in September 1972, when Citytv first took to the airwaves, it was clear that this was television with a difference: low-powered, low-cost, and local television delivered with high-energy, high-style, and high-tech.
To make it happen, Citytv moved into a classic five story, 160,000 square foot building on the busiest block of Queen Street West in the heart of downtown Toronto between a stretch of sidewalk cafes and ethnic restaurants.
At Citytv, new ideas and fresh insights can come in any place, from anyone, and at any time -- especially with the hours Znaimer keeps: he sleeps only three hours a night, often in the loft in his office.

 CityTv, Not CTV Poll On Same-Sex 'Marriage' No Joke But Was for Only 20 Minutes
More readers have since contacted us and, lo and behold, informed LifeSiteNews.com that there actually was an early December telephone poll but it was conducted at the time on behalf of Toronto's CityTv, not the national CTV television network, as many emails promoting the poll stated.
However, there is more to the story of this poll that got away from everyone and developed a life of its own that is still going on, and has made some CityTv staff very unhappy in the process.
A spokeswoman with the company explained that the City Pulse at Noon program, which was responsible for the same-sex 'marriage' question, announces a different polling question at the end of its program every day at 12:30 p.m.

 Citytv at AllExperts
The original Citytv station (granted callsign CITY-TV by the CRTC) was founded in Toronto in 1972 and began broadcasting for the first time on September 28 of that year.
Citytv calls its videojournalists "videographers," but unlike many American television markets which try to conceal the fact that reporters are so-called "one-man bands," Citytv embraced the use of videojournalism by highlighting the use of technology; Citytv videographers often carry a second home video camera to record images of them videotaping on the scene.
However, Citytv itself was unsuccessful in expanding its audience to other markets; as of July 12, 2006, traditional newscasts have been discontinued on all Citytv stations other than the Toronto station.

Citytvs first priority when it launched in the three new markets was its primetime programming, according to Arthur.

According to Arthur, Citytv also tries to "coax" viewers to feel as if they are part of the network by holding events like an annual pancake breakfast or a food festival.

 Playback :: Citytv launches in Vancouver
Vancouver: Citytv's launch in Vancouver July 22 may not be giving existing stations static today, but could be a real threat in five to 10 years - especially when it comes to news and local programming, says a local analyst.

Stanger says Citytv Vancouver is doing what was expected, based on the Citytv Toronto model, and fills a void in the market created several years ago when Global, which previously owned CKVU, dumped the locally minded U.TV brand for the national Global brand.
