ABOUT

City television stations in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Saskatchewan and Montreal offer viewers intensely-local, urban-oriented, culturally-diverse television programming.

A distinct alternative to other conventional television stations, City engages its viewers with dynamic on-air personalities and delivers an entertaining mix of news, local-interactive formats such as: Breakfast Television and CityLine; as well as local Canadian and US acquired prime time entertainment programming.

City is a part of Rogers Broadcasting Limited, a division of Rogers Communications Inc. (TSX: RCI and NYSE: RCI) which is a diversified Canadian communications and media company.

City stations originally had an intensely local format based on newscasts aimed at younger viewers, nightly movies, and music and cultural programming. Moses Znaimer, who developed the original format, once described the system's philosophy by saying, "It's not the show, it's the flow".

Since the 2000s, and particularly since its acquisition by Rogers, City has expanded its national reach and has moved towards a series-based primetime schedule much like its competitors, albeit one still focused on younger demographics.
