The station is owned by the Rogers Media subsidiary of Rogers Communications, as part of a triplestick (the only conventional television triplestick operated by the company) with Omni Television flagship stations CFMT-DT (channel 47) and CJMT-DT (channel 40). The three stations share studios at 33 Dundas Street East on Yonge-Dundas Square in Downtown Toronto; CITY-DT's transmitter is located atop the CN Tower, also in Downtown Toronto. The station went on the air on September 28, 1972 by a consortium led by Phyllis Switzer, Moses Znaimer, Jerry Grafstein and Edgar Cowan, as CITY-TV, branded on-air as Citytv. In 1981, the station was sold to CHUM Limited, who retained Znaimer as an executive. For the majority of its early life, CITY-TV operated as an independent station, best known for its unconventional approaches to news and other locally produced programming. After having used syndication to bring its original programming to other Canadian markets, CHUM later used CITY-TV as the basis and flagship station of a television system, acquiring and establishing new stations under the Citytv name. In 2006, CTVglobemedia announced its intent to acquire CHUM Limited, but was required to divest stations due to conflicts with CTV stations it already owned in Citytv's markets. CTV chose to keep the stations of CHUM's secondary A-Channel system, as well as CITY-TV's sister news channel CP24, but divested CITY-TV and its sister stations to Rogers Media. Under Rogers ownership, CITY's programming became more conventional in nature. On cable, the station is available on corporate sister Rogers Cable channel 7 and digital channel 133; on satellite, it is carried on Bell TV channel 214, and on Shaw Direct classic lineup channel 35 and advanced lineup channel 40. There is a high definition feed on Rogers Cable digital channel 519, on Bell TV channel 1053, and on Shaw Direct channels 344 (classic) and 535 (advanced).
