Now I think I've seen it all. At the end of tonight's six o'clock CTV Kitchener newscast, they obviously miscalculated the total show runtime, because they had to glaringly repeat the same closing credit sequence three times in a row, in order to fill a gap. 🤦♂️
Almost as bad as what I witnessed sometime in the last week or so, during one of the "Your Morning" local news updates: technical difficulties would have been an understatement. Instead of giving the usual rundown of top stories, the notoriously troublesome Tegan Versolatto must have been instructed to talk about the weather for the whole two minutes, because she painstakingly dragged out smalltalking about the forecast for the entire newsbreak. Mmmhmm.
CTV should create a new slogan for itself: always worse, everyday.
On today's CTV Kitchener news at noon, newbie from away Tyler Kelaher mispronounced "The Aud" as "The Ohh" even though this is the largest, oldest sports/entertainment/multipurpose facility in all of Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge, so anybody with any bit of knowledge of local geography and culture would know it's pronounced like "Odd" because it's short for "The Kitchener Memorial Auditorium"!
Apparently CTV isn't the only news outlet whose constant budget-cutting is resulting in laughable mistakes with template graphics. Here's a page from Waterloo Region Record newspaper where they've captioned a columnist with "First name Last name"!
Maybe they should just quit publishing a print newspaper because they're obviously incapable of getting anything right the first time, relying solely on being able to "update" incorrect content, without acknowledgement, on the nonstatic web version.
Why does the London station even exist. For another holiday the station choose to run a Holmes show inside of trying to do a local newscast at six. It is a shame how far CTV has gone in destroying one of Canada's heritage broadcasting television stations.
