CHEK-TV in Victoria and CHCA-TV in Red Deer will close on August 31. However, Canwest says it will keep its Kelowna station open under the Global TV banner.
These are the last of the five E! network stations. CHCH-TV in Hamilton and CJNT-TV in Montreal are being sold to Channel Zero.
As a result of the closure of the two stations, 80 people will reportedly lose their jobs.
Not a great day for local TV in Canada.
