Shaw Media applies to launch BC news channel

Shaw Media has filed an application with the Canadian Radio-Television Telecommunications Commission to launch a regional, Global news specialty channel. The company hopes to debut the yet-to-be-named channel this summer. It will provide local, national and international headlines 24 hours a day, as well as live event coverage and a primetime talk show. "The creation of an all-news channel in BC demonstrates our commitment to help grow and develop Global News in new and exciting ways," said Paul Robertson, group vice-president of broadcasting and president of Shaw Media. "This all-news network will build on Global BC's proven success and represents a major step towards expanding Global News' reach and accessibility province-wide."
