About Us

City premiered on September 28, 1972, adding an original and progressive voice to television broadcasting and immediately gaining attention for its unique, information and entertainment driven format. In an industry where the pressures for sameness appeared overwhelming, City brought a radically different look, sound and feel to television–quickly becoming known as the youthful, urban and hip spot on the dial.

City’s unique combination of extremely cost-effective, original programming, and high-energy, award-winning news and lifestyle coverage is now heralded internationally as the television of the future. Our newsroom’s mission: To tell the stories that touch hearts, as well as minds.

The CityNews staff is dedicated to bringing viewers “A day in the life of Toronto” every day. CityNews can be seen every weekday on City, beginning with Breakfast Television at 5:30 a.m., followed by CityNews at Five, CityNews at Six and CityNews Tonight at 11 p.m. On weekends, CityNews at Six and CityNews Tonight at 11 p.m. bring you the day’s top stories.
