In September of 2009, CHEK became North America’s first and only employee-owned television station.

Throughout the station’s incredible 60 year history CHEK has continued to produced popular local programs relevant to viewers on Vancouver Island.

Over the past six decades, CHEK has grown to meet the ever-changing needs of advertisers and audiences. Gone are the days of live commercials, where the message was more important than the length. Today, CHEK’s award winning Creative Services department captures an advertiser’s message in a precise highly-crafted, 30 or 15 second spot that is often complimented by on-line advertising.

CHEK has been part of the fabric of the communities it serves since 1956, and continues to provide viewers with compelling and comprehensive news coverage from all across Vancouver Island seven days a week. Giving back has also been a major part of the station’s 60-year history. CHEK continues to dedicate its people, airtime and resources to countless events and causes.
