|COVERING TV STATIONS IN SOUTHWESTERN BC|
As part of CHUM's new corporate branding strategy following the purchase of the Craig Media stations in the Prairies, the original A-Channel stations were re-branded to Citytv on August 2, 2005, and the NewNet stations took over the A-Channel brand on the same day.
CKVU was also slated to get a new on-air look. However, it also had plans to unveil a new presenter lineup on August 15. As such, the changes did not take place until that day.
On August 15, the "CityPulse" title was dropped from
the station's newscasts, and was replaced by "CityNews". New graphics and
an updated version of the news theme were also introduced, and for the
first time in recent memory, the station began to use an on-air bug
throughout the newscast (previously a bug was only used on programming
outside of news).
