Global News Calgary Wins Election Night



    MORE VIEWERS CHOSE GLOBAL'S ELECTION COVERAGE THAN ANY OTHER LOCAL
    NEWSCAST

    CALGARY, Oct. 17 /CNW/ - On the night when ballots were counted, Global
News Calgary was the clear winner with more Calgary viewers choosing their
election night coverage than any other local newscast. Viewers knew exactly
who to turn to for trusted news, analysis and perspective on election results.
    Global News election coverage included live updates throughout primetime
programming and a special "Decision Calgary" edition of News Hour Final with
Brienne Hurlburt. Anchor Gord Gillies and Jill Croteau reported live from the
party headquarters and analysis was provided by political science expert Duane
Bratt.
    "With dramatically increased public interest in the election, and a big
jump in voter turnout, Calgary voters wanted the best information in election
results," said Dave Budge, News Director of Global News Calgary. "It's very
gratifying that most Calgarians knew to turn to Global News for the most
accurate, interesting and comprehensive election broadcast."

    
    On election night, Global News Calgary dominated the competition.
