History

Predecessor companies

Baton Broadcasting

For all practical purposes, CTVglobemedia is the successor to Baton Broadcasting Inc. (first word pronounced /ˈbeɪtɒn/ or BAY-ton), which by the late 1990s had become one of Canada's largest broadcasters.


Baton Aldred Rogers Broadcasting Ltd. was originally formed in 1960 to operate Toronto's first private TV station, CFTO-TV. The original investors included the Bassett and Eaton families, Joel Aldred and Ted Rogers, and Foster Hewitt in a much smaller role. Aldred sold his shares in 1961, followed by Rogers by 1970; with the Bassett and Eaton families firmly in control, the company went public in the early 1970s. CFTO became a CTV affiliate in October 1961, and soon after Baton became a part-owner in the network. CFTO-TV (now identifying as CTV Toronto) is a television station, licensed to, and serving Toronto, Canada, and surrounding areas. ...

In 1972, the renamed Baton Broadcasting began purchasing other CTV affiliates, starting with CFQC-TV Saskatoon. This did not, however, give Baton a substantially higher investment in CTV, which was structured as a co-operative, not a traditional private company. Baton still only had one vote - as did every other CTV affiliate-owner. CFQC-TV (also commonly known as CTV Saskatoon) is a Canadian television station, serving Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. ...

In the late 1980s, Baton applied for a high-power station in Ottawa on channel 60. The licence was approved, appealed by rival broadcasters, and ultimately sent back to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) for review, [3] but the licence was surrendered when its owner, Allan Slaight's Standard Broadcasting, instead decided to sell the local CTV affiliate, CJOH-TV, to Baton.

In 1991, the company launched Ontario Network Television, a secondary affiliation carried by Baton's CTV and independent stations in Ontario. This was expanded in 1994 into the Baton Broadcast System, or BBS, which included Baton's Saskatchewan stations. BBS was meant as a backup in case Baton's ongoing acquisitions did not translate into control of CTV itself. CTV had been recently restructured as a traditional private company, meaning that any future acquisitions by Baton would come with all of that affiliate's CTV shares. It was around this time that former CBC executive Ivan Fecan joined the company. An independent station is a television station that is not affiliated with any network. ...

Baton-Electrohome alliance

In 1996, the CRTC approved two major deals involving Baton. First was the acquisition of CFCN-TV in Calgary from Rogers Communications, which had recently purchased Maclean Hunter. Second, Baton and Electrohome formed an alliance, under which the companies would share ownership of CFCN, Baton's stations in Saskatchewan and its independent stations in southwestern Ontario, and Electrohome's CKCO-TV Kitchener. The deals doubled Baton's own interest in CTV to 28.6%, but also gave it control over Electrohome's shares, for a total of 42.9%.

In January 1997, Baton-Electrohome's "Vancouver Television" proposal emerged as the CRTC's choice for the new independent station in Vancouver, British Columbia, beating out four other competitors. The new station, CIVT-TV, would compete directly with Western International Communications's two CTV affiliates in the market when it was launched that fall.

On February 25, 1997, the Baton-Electrohome alliance and CHUM Limited announced that several stations would be swapped between them, giving Baton control of CTV. Baton-Electrohome would acquire CHUM's Atlantic Television System (ATV), consisting of four CTV affiliates in the Maritimes, the Atlantic Satellite Network (ASN), and a further 14.3% in CTV.

Shortly thereafter, Electrohome announced it would sell its broadcasting assets – including its interest in the alliance, its CTV shares, and CFRN-TV Edmonton – to Baton in exchange for shares in Baton. These two deals were approved by the CRTC in August. [6] Baton acquired the remaining CTV shares from WIC and Moffat Communications, which remained affiliates for the moment, that fall.

The BBS name was discontinued in favour of CTV, and the company itself was renamed CTV Inc. the following year. The Eatons' remaining shares, representing 41% of Baton, were sold off to the general public in early 1998. By the end of 2001, nearly all CTV stations would be consolidated under network ownership (including one replacement).


CTV Inc. continues to exist as a subsidiary of CTVglobemedia.


NetStar Communications

NetStar Communications Inc. (previously Labatt Communications Inc., and currently CTV Specialty Television Inc.) was formed by Labatt Brewing Company to hold that firm's broadcasting assets, which included TSN, RDS, Viewers Choice and Discovery Channel. In 1995, when the parent company was sold to the foreign brewing conglomerate Interbrew, a consortium of four Canadian investors - Stephen Bronfman (22.5%), Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (22.5%), Reitmans (16.5%), and senior management (6.5%) - along with ESPN, with 32%, took over the company.

2000 to present

Under Bell Canada ownership - Bell Globemedia (2000-2006)

CTVglobemedia in its current form was masterminded by former Bell Canada Enterprises chief executive Jean Monty, largely as a response to CanWest Global Communications's purchase of the Southam newspaper chain as well as the trend of media convergence, particularly the AOL-Time Warner merger. Monty believed that, to survive in a changing technological landscape, and in particular to drive subscriptions to satellite television provider Bell ExpressVu and internet service provider Bell Sympatico, BCE had to have control over content.

In early 2000, under Monty, BCE acquired CTV Inc. in an all-cash transaction valued at $2.3 billion (CAD). [8] Soon after, Monty arranged to have Thomson Corporation transfer control of The Globe and Mail, the Toronto-based national newspaper, to BCE in exchange for a significant (20%) interest in the merged CTV/Globe entity.

Formerly known as Bell Globemedia

The resulting company, Bell Globemedia Inc. (hereafter abbreviated "BGM"), consisted of CTV, The Globe and Mail, and the internet portal then known as Sympatico-Lycos (Lycos was later replaced by MSN). Fecan was named the combined firm's president and CEO, a role he continues in today.

The following years provided a few cosmetic changes in BGM's assets. In 2001, CTV acquired CKY-TV in Winnipeg and CFCF-TV in Montreal, and moved the CTV affiliation in British Columbia to CIVT, replacing two affiliates that had been purchased by CanWest. That fall also brought the launch of the first digital specialty channels, including several owned by CTV.

The company acquired partial ownership in TQS in 2002, the Sympatico portal was sold back to Bell Canada, while a further investment from the Thomsons (whose ownership increased to 31.5%) funded the acquisition of 15% of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment. However, since BGM was first termed a non-core asset by BCE management in 2003, much attention was given to its likely sale, and a possible breakup into several different pieces.
