BO-HB is done, let go by CHEK as Scott Fee presumably puts his stamp on the station.

 

Somewhat surprising as he was a very experienced news biz guy having previously been a foreign correspondent for both Global and CTV News. OTOH maybe the move is just continuing the trend over the last decade+ of firing on-air personalities making beyond "x" dollars....

Both television stations have recently begun broadcasting their local studio news in full HD. Chek did it about a month ago and CTV VI about a week ago.

The improvement in both is very noticeable.

 

Wow - watching CTV's newscast now and the picture sure has improved.

I was kind of expecting Bell never to invest in the improvements, eventually shutting down the station. I guess it's got another few years of life in it.

Calvin To is leaving; just did his last broadcast. Sad to see him go; does anyone know where he is going?

Is it just me, or is CHEK news getting a little more 'sensational' these days?  They seem to be playing up crime stories compared to the recent past, possibly at the expense of 'human interest' stories...
