Concordia University Television (CUTV) is a closed circuit television station under student management. It has its origins in Television Sir George (TVSG) which came into existence in October 1966, with the ratification by the Students’Association of Sir George Williams University (later the Day Students’ Association) and made its home in the then newly erected Henry F. Hall Building. The first organization staff was composed of James Joyce as executive producer, Rob Joyce as creative director, and Barry Barnes as technical advisor. Membership was open to all undergraduate students. TV Sir George’s first show appeared on Channel 9 on November 21st 1966. TV Sir George became CUTV in January 1975, following the creation of Concordia University in August 1974. CUTV enjoyed a good working relationship with the Concordia Audio-Visual Department. Thearrangement they had was mutually advantageous. CUTV had special borrowing privileges which represented a substantial saving. The AV Department, on the other hand, looked to CUTV for the skilled people it needed as part-time workers. CUTV was a club member of the Concordia University Student Association (CUSA) and then the Concordia Student Union (CSU) until 2003 when CUTV transferred its ownership to the Concordia Student Broadcasting Corporation, the parent company of CJLO radio.
