CICT-DT (branded on-air as Global Calgary) is the Global owned-and-operated television station in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It broadcasts a high-definition digital signal on UHF channel 41 (or virtual channel 2.1 via PSIP) from a transmitter near Old Banff Coach Road/Highway 563 and Artists View Drive, near the Calgary city limits.
Owned by Shaw Media, its studios are located on 23 Street Northeast and Barlow Trail in Calgary, near the Mayland Heights neighborhood. This station can also be seen on Shaw Cable channel 7, Bell TV channel 244, Rogers Personal TV channel 118 and Shaw Direct channel 338. There is also a high definition feed available on Shaw Cable digital channel 211.
CICT-TV signed on October 8, 1954 as CHCT, an affiliate of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), and the first television station in Alberta. The studios, offices and antenna were located on a hill seven miles (11 km) west of the city. The station’s owners, Calgary Television Ltd., were a consortium of the three Calgary radio stations CFCN, CFAC and CKXL. The CT in CHCT stood for Calgary Television.
During the construction of the transmitter, the 70 foot, 5 ton antenna was being hoisted on the top of the 600-foot (180 m) tower when the cable snapped and the antenna fell all the way down the tower to imbed itself 15 feet (4.6 m) in the ground. Fortunately no one was injured, and the antenna was able to be repaired, but the station’s launch was delayed by 10 days. A year later, CHCT moved its studios and offices from the transmitter site on Old Banff Coach Road, to a renovated badminton club/sea cadet drill hall on 955 Rideau Road S.W. Calgary.
Notable productions at the original studio include:
- Klara’s Korner: a cooking show that was in national syndication for many years
- Yan Can Cook: another cooking show, this time hosted by Martin Yan, over 600 shows were produced. It also aired for many years on PBS in North America.
- Stampede Wrestling: produced for over 20 years, finding loyal audiences worldwide
- It Figures: the show originated at the station and it was produced for nearly 20 years
In 1957, CKXL Ltd. sold its share in Calgary Television Ltd., to Fredrick Shaw, who had recently sold his share in CKXL-AM to Tel-Ray Ltd. CFCN sold off its share in 1961 when it opened its own station, CFCN-TV. In 1968, Selkirk Broadcasting, owner of CFAC-AM, became sole owner of the station, and its call sign was accordingly changed to CFAC-TV. On September 1, 1975, after the CBC launched its own station in Calgary, CBRT, CFAC-TV disaffiliated from CBC and became independent. In 1979, the station branded itself as Channel 2&7, referring to its cable location. For a number of years afterwards, it continued to use the old CFAC "star" logo alongside the 2&7 logo.
In 1981, the station moved to its new home, the Calgary Television Center, a move reflecting its growth since its disaffiliation from the CBC. After obtaining the television rights to the Calgary Flames National Hockey League franchise the year before, the station purchased a seven camera mobile unit soon after. The station has been the Flames’ television partner since 1980. In the fall of 1982, the station began broadcasting 24 hours a day, a first for Calgary. Overnight shows consisted of Late Night movies and reruns of the Jackie Gleason Show amongst others.
In 1989, Maclean-Hunter purchased Selkirk Communications, but due to ownership regulations at the time (Maclean-Hunter already owned CFCN-TV), CFAC-TV was sold to Western International Communications (WIC). A year after WIC bought channel 2, it changed the calls to CKKX-TV. In 1992, CKKX’s news operations were expanded with the acquisitions of a satellite uplink truck and a fleet of electronic news gathering microwave trucks.
On September 7, 1993, CKKX was recalled CICT-TV, and also took on the brand of Calgary 7, referring to the station’s cable channel.
WIC's properties were split between Shaw Communications. and Canwest in 1998. This move required Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) approval, the plans for which were filed in 1999 and approved in 2000. Canwest acquired WIC's television assets, including CICT, which Shaw later bought Canwest's assets decades later becoming Shaw Media (which is based in the same city) amidst seeking creditor protection.
On September 4, 2000, CICT joined the Global Television Network, along with fellow Alberta stations CITV-TV and CISA. By 2001, CICT-TV began relays in Drumheller (CICT-TV-1) and Banff (CICT-TV-2). The station had been airing some Global shows since 1988.
CICT airs the same schedule as Global Edmonton. All non-news programming and some Calgary-based newscasts are also aired on Global Lethbridge.
News operation 
Global Calgary currently airs a total of 43 hours of local news a week. Global Calgary became the first television station in Calgary, and the second television station in the province of Alberta, to shoot and transmit its local newscasts in High Definition on November 22, 2010.
On April 11, 2007, the station became the first in Calgary with a news helicopter. Named Global 1, it provides traffic reports on the Morning News in combination with studio traffic segments. It is also intended to provide breaking news coverage. The helicopter is also shared with AM 770 CHQR during the morning and afternoon rush hour.
On May 31, 2011, Shaw Media announced that a new Sunday morning local newscast would begin broadcasting on Global Calgary in September 2011, running from 8-10 a.m. Mountain Time. On August 27, 2012, Global Calgary will expand its weekday morning newscast to four hours, with the addition of a half-hour at 5 a.m., the 5-6 a.m. hour of the newscast will be titled as the Early Morning News; in addition on September 2, 2012, the station will expand its Sunday morning newscast to three hours with an additional hour at 7 a.m. The expansions of the station's morning news programming is part of an expansion of local news programming on Global owned-and-operated stations across Canada. On January 7, 2013, Global Calgary began airing the national edition of the "The Morning Show" produced by Global Toronto; the show does not replace the currently existing "Morning News" which remains locally produced.
