Global BC celebrates 60 years

This year, Global BC is celebrating an incredible milestone – 60 years on the air in British Columbia.

The station, which was originally named CHAN-TV and aired on Channel 8, first signed on the air at 4:45 p.m. on October 31, 1960 in downtown Vancouver at the corner of Richards & Davie streets. Two years later, the station moved to Burnaby, where it has been ever since.

Over the next few months, we’ll be looking back at images and stories aired over the past six decades.

In addition to visiting Globalnews.ca/globalbc60years, be sure to check the Global BC Community Facebook page every week for a new Throwback Thursday post of historical footage and pictures.
