Global BC 60 Years

Global BC celebrated an incredible milestone in 2020 — 60 years on air and in the community!

The station, originally branded CHAN-TV and airing on Channel 8, first signed on the air at 4:45 p.m. on Oct. 31, 1960 from temporary studios at the corner of Richards and Davie streets in downtown Vancouver. A short time later the station moved to Burnaby, where it has been broadcasting from ever since.
