CHUM Television

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


CHUM Television was a division of CHUM Limited, the former owners of Citytv, MuchMusic, and Space, among others. On July 12, 2006, Bell Globemedia announced an acquisition of CHUM, with the company being renamed to CTVglobemedia on January 1, 2007. The Citytv stations were sold off to Rogers Communications. The deal was completed on June 22, 2007.
