Perry’s Probe

Network: CTV Television Network

Broadcast Run: 1968 to 1969

Broadcast Medium: Television

Toronto newsman and interviewer Norm Perry hosted this half-hour investigative journalism series, first as a local program on CFTO-TV Toronto and later as a CTV network daytime strip. It only lasted one season, but Perry re-emerged several years later on the network as co-host of Canada AM, where he occupied one of the anchor chairs from 1975 to 1990, longer than anyone before or since.

Perry’s Probe played on CTV Monday to Friday, 2:30 – 3:00pm, for the 1968-69 season.
