Encyclopedia > Baton Broadcasting

The Baton Broadcasting System (BBS) was a Canadian system of television stations located in Ontario and Saskatchewan. It was owned by Baton Broadcasting.

Most BBS stations maintained primary affiliation with one of Canada's major networks. Although BBS stations shared some programming as a distinct station group, BBS was only a supplementary affiliation, not a separate television network. Most BBS stations were primary affiliates of CTV. However, some BBS stations were private affiliates of the CBC, either as twinstick operations with CTV stations in the same markets (eg. MCTV), or in communities where the CBC station was the sole station in the market (eg. CKNX). Several stations, such as CFPL, were also otherwise independent.

BBS was folded in 1997, when Baton Broadcasting became the sole corporate owner of CTV. The network's CBC affiliates and independents were all sold either to CHUM Limited, becoming NewNet stations, or to the CBC itself, becoming repeaters of other stations. CTV no longer owns any stations that are affiliated with other Canadian networks.
