|COVERING TV STATIONS IN SOUTHWESTERN BC|
"Breakfast Television" (8/15/2005)
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, Breakfast Television received brand new graphics and theme music, and now looks identical to the station's other newscasts (except for the enhanced screen, which was also updated). Simi Sara also returned to the mornings, now joined by Dave Gerry. Tasha Chiu joined as the new entertainment/live-eye correspondent. Mark Docherty and Dawn Chubai continue to handle news/sports and traffic/weather respectively.
