Global BC 60 Years

Global BC is celebrating an incredible milestone this year — 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.

In the leadup to Global BC’s 60 YEAR celebration on Oct. 31, 2020, we’re looking back at stories, interviews and images that shaped our community over the past six decades.

Every Friday, we’ll post one viewer’s special picture as the image of the week on our Facebook and Instagram handles – watch to see if your pic will be our next feature!
