1960:
Oct. 31 at 4:45 pm: CHAN TV CHANNEL 8 VANCOUVER signs on as Vancouver’s first independent TV station.  Within 2 years it would move from it’s small studios on Seymour Street in downtown Vancouver to Lake City in Burnaby.  In a year it would become a member of the brand new CTV TELEVISION NETWORK.    In 1968, the very popular “News Hour” started from 6-7 pm nightly.  Over the next 17 years as it built over 100 rebroadcast transmitters throughout the province, it became known as BCTV.  CHAN TV history.
