From the grand opening of CFCF 12 to some of our famous faces that you’ve welcomed into your home. Click the video player to the right to watch these short clips from yesteryear. CFCF went on the air in 1961, with a song and dance, next up was the first of many news magazine shows, Carte Blanche, featuring an interview with Mayor Jean Drapeau. During the 1960s we brought you lots of live programming geared towards children and young adults with famous hosts like Magic Tom and Johnny Jellybean. One man who personified CFCF 12 was Don McGowan, who did everything from hosting talk shows and game shows to predicting the weather and travelling around the world. Bill Haugland was our main news anchor from 1977 to 2006 and he offers a brief retrospective on growing up English in Montreal.
