The New PL (CFPL London) In Touch 2003

Community Events feature from the New PL in 2003 

In 1997, Baton sold CFPL and some of its other television stations to CHUM Limited. Under CHUM, CFPL joined the NewNet system and was accordingly rebranded "The New PL" in September 1998. 

In February 2005, CHUM announced plans to consolidate the master control operations for CFPL, CKVR, CHRO, CHWI, and CKNX at 299 Queen Street West in Toronto, and consolidate the traffic and programming departments at CFPL in London, resulting in the loss of approximately 13 staff members from CFPL. On June 3, 2005, at approximately 10:00 a.m., the London master control signal came to an end, as the new consolidated master control took to air.
