Currently, CICT broadcasts 46 1/2 hours worth of locally produced newscasts every week (7 1/2 hours on weekdays and 4 1/2 hours on Saturdays and Sundays). It is the station with the most hours dedicated to news programming of any English-language TV station in Calgary.
Global News Calgary was the first station to use a helicopter to gather news on April 11, 2007. It is called "Global 1" and provides traffic reports for the Morning News, in addition to in-studio traffic segments. It also has the potential to provide breaking news coverage. CHQR (770 AM), also shares the helicopter during rush hour. CICT was the first station to broadcast local newscasts in Calgary and in Alberta in high definition. A new virtual set was also created on this date.
CICT launched a Sunday morning newscast that ran from 8-10 a.m. Mountain Time on September 11. The station's weekday morning newscast was extended to four hours on August 27, 2012. It also added a half hour at 5 a.m. to the newscast, which is titled the Early Morning News. On September 2, 2012, the station increased its Sunday morning newscast from three hours to three hours. An additional hour was added at 7 a.m. As part of the Shaw Communications sale of the Global Network, the station expanded its morning newscasts.
