A Morning (formerly New Day, Breakfast at The New RO in the case of Ottawa, and A-Channel Morning) is a morning television show that formerly aired on Canada's CHRO-TV in Ottawa and the other stations in the A system (except for A Atlantic).

Due to severe financial issues, as of March 4, 2009, only one ion of A Morning aired, namely the one at CHRO-TV Ottawa.[1] The versions in Barrie and London were cancelled outright, with the timeslot filled by encores of the previous day's late news, while the Victoria ion was replaced with a simulcast of CFAX 1070's morning show.[2]

A Atlantic continued to produce its own morning program, Breakfast Television. Following the re-launch of A as CTV Two on August 29, 2011 and the re-alignment of the stations' news operations with the CTV News branding, both Breakfast Television in the Atlantic and A Morning in Ottawa were re-branded as CTV Morning Live.[3][4]

Victoria[]
