I didn’t catch this on Christmas Day (because, sadly, I was working), but CFCF aired a half-hour year-in-review special in place of its regular newscast. It featured some discussions with CTV staff, and little packaged bits from reporters about their favourite stories of the year.
You can watch the whole thing on its website, but the highlight for local TV buffs is the final segment, which takes a look at their plans for a new studio (hinting that the newscast will be in HD in 2012), and finishes off with bloopers (the funniest ones involving Paul Karwatsky).
Could the set look any more generically CTV News? I mean, that set could be anywhere. All the personality of baby food.
It looks a lot better than the current set!
Looks a lot like the Toronto Studio.
Any set could be from anywhere if you strip the logos and the skyline from it. Who cares if the set looks similar to some set in another city?
Again, who cares. CTV needs to go away. Canadian televison airwaves should have Canadian shows.
