June:
The CRTC approves CTVglobemedia’s acquisition of CHUM, but orders the media entity to sell all five of the Citytv stations it purchased in the $1.7 billion deal. The regulator said allowing CTV to hold onto the stations — in Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary and Winnipeg — would violate the “common ownership” policy, which prevents a broadcaster from operating more than one commercial TV station in one language in a given market.
