#1 With Traffic and Weather

Ottawans have a new destination for the latest local news, features on community leaders and events, business openings and everything in between, with the debut of Journalists from CityNews, Rogers Sports & Media’s award-winning news and talk radio station, will provide the local news content on the website. CityNews delivers the news, traffic, weather and business information you need, when you need it.

Desktop?  Mobile? Tablet? Definitely. 

We break locally-driven news written by local journalists and cover all the important issues in Ottawa.  It’s our top priority. We update throughout the day, so when you come back to visit, chances are you’ll find something new.

In addition to hard news, we also provide information that is important to the community that you won’t find in most media.  We like to write stories about new local businesses, highlight special events and bring you general information about anything that impacts the heart of the community.  Although we are hyper-local in our approach, we also provide national news from The Canadian Press, editorial columnists, entertainment and special features.

We’re independent and it shows in everything we do. And we promise that we’ll remain fiercely local. Like you.
