Global News is pleased to announce that its flagship newscast, Global National, is expanding to four additional television stations.
Starting Thursday, Global National will air on CKSA, a Newcap-owned television station in Lloydminster, Alberta.
Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 6, the show will also run on three additional Corus-owned stations: CKWS Kingston, CHEX Peterborough and Channel 12 Durham. The program will be broadcast at 5:30 p.m. local time in each city.
Global News is also delighted to unveil new local versions of the network morning program, The Morning Show. Launching on Monday, Oct. 17 on CKWS Kingston and on Monday, Oct. 24 on CHEX Peterborough, the show will air from 6 – 9 a.m. With these programs, CKWS and CHEX will deliver local morning news to their respective viewers for the first time in history.
The Morning Show will feature local news and community interviews with network cut-ins from Global’s national team in both markets.
“Global National is Canada’s most dynamic national newscast and we’re thrilled to see it expand to new audiences,” said Troy Reeb, Senior Vice President, Global News & Corus Radio. “Corus is also committed to local programming and we’re so excited to add new, local versions of The Morning Show in these two great Ontario cities, to not only share the stories that shape their communities, but also those that band the country together.”
More details about the new morning shows, including the show hosts, will be announced later in the fall.
