Many stations across the US sent producers to Toronto to copy the Citytv-style newscast that was wildly successful and certainly different and groundbreaking. It that it was raw and fresh and urban.
KCOP 13 Los Angeles emulated their style as well.
And of course Channel 5 News copies Citytv even going to point of the decorated sports area.
Interestingly enough Citytv has completely change their news presentation to something I havent seen copied on any other station. Typically every newscast is almost presenter-less. With basically each reporter throwing from one live report to the next with a presenter in the newsroom occasionally linking things together. There is no music or voiceover used at all. Its a very different newscast. That highlights the work of the report and drives home the taglines "THE CITY IS OUR NEWSROOM" and "EVERYWHERE"..
Here is the new CityTv CityNews format. (Well part of it)
CityTv Bogota continues to use the format that licensed from ChumInternational for the last 20yrs successfully. They still use the orginal theme but updated it with more of a latin beat. Just recently they finally modified the logo.
I'm here to give you something to talk about!
