As of October 2005 logos with the stations' callsigns are no longer used on CTV stations; instead they all use the main CTV logo. (File:CJOH-TV.jpg) From 1990 to 1997, the station was co-owned with Pembroke (Pembroke, Ontario)-based CHRO-TV, which was for the majority of that period a CTV affiliate for the Upper Ottawa Valley. In 1997, as part of a major trade, CHRO was transferred to CHUM Limited, and became a NewNet (later A-Channel (A (TV system))) station primarily serving Ottawa. In 2007, CTVglobemedia received Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) approval to acquire CHUM; while CTV did not originally plan to keep A-Channel, it decided to do so following a CRTC requirement to sell the Citytv system. This once again made CJOH and CHRO sister stations in a market with only one other local English-language station, CBOT (CBOT (TV)). Interestingly, while the CRTC forced the Citytv sale because of concerns about media concentration with multiple stations in the same city, it had no problem allowing the Ottawa twinstick, apparently due to the precedent set by the stations having common ownership in the 1990s. From west to east, the major Ottawa Valley communities are Mattawa (Mattawa, Ontario), Deep River (Deep River, Ontario) (with nearby Chalk River (Chalk River, Ontario), the site of Canada's nuclear reactor program), Petawawa (Petawawa, Ontario) (a major Canadian military base), Pembroke (Pembroke, Ontario) (where Samuel de Champlain landed briefly), Fort Coulonge (Fort Coulonge, Quebec), Shawville (Shawville, Quebec), Renfrew (Renfrew, Ontario), Quyon (Quyon, Quebec), Arnprior (Arnprior, Ontario), Ottawa (the nation's capital), Rockland (Rockland, Ontario), L'Orignal (L'Orignal, Ontario), Hawkesbury (Hawkesbury, Ontario), and Rigaud (Rigaud, Quebec). On January 30 a memorial service (funeral) was held in Pembroke, Ontario. Among the 1,000+ in attendance was Governor General (Governor General of Canada) Adrienne Clarkson. Murphy's body was taken the following day to Conception Harbour (Conception Harbour, Newfoundland and Labrador), Newfoundland (Newfoundland and Labrador), for his funeral February 3. The experiment was successful enough that CHUM replicated CKVR's format on several stations it had acquired from Baton Broadcasting in 1997, including CHRO (CHRO-TV) in Pembroke (Pembroke, Ontario), CFPL (CFPL-DT) in London (London, Ontario), CKNX (CKNX-TV) in Wingham (Wingham, Ontario), and CHWI (CHWI-DT) in Windsor (Windsor, Ontario). Most of these stations were also former CBC affiliates, and all were in markets where CKVR's sister station, CITY-TV, were already available on basic cable.
