About CTV News Ottawa

 

CTV Ottawa is the News and Entertainment Programming Leader in eastern Ontario and western Quebec, with a weekly reach of more than one million viewers. Locally, CTV News has won regional and national awards for broadcasting excellence as well as for its tireless work in the community. The station recently celebrated its 50th anniversary of broadcasting.



CTV Ottawa's call letters are CJOH and is owned and operated by Bell Media Inc. It provides outstanding news and entertainment programming to eastern Ontario and west Quebec. The station went on the air for the first time March 12, 1961. At the time our studios were temporarily housed in a warehouse on Bayswater Ave. at Somerset St. Five months later we moved to 1500 Merivale Road.

 

A devastating February 7, 2010 fire at CTV Ottawa's Merivale Road building saw the station relocate to its current location at 87 George Street in Ottawa's historic By Ward Market area, and broadcasts from the same location as CTV2 and radio stations CFRA, Ottawa’s New Country 94, MOVE 100 and TSN1200.
