This station operates everyday from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM (PST). In 2017, CLTV 36 was the leading free-to-air regional television channel in the country based on the AGB Nielsen survey, for two consecutive years,[2] and was awarded as the Best Local TV Station by the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas, Paragala Central Luzon Media Awards and Gandingan Awards.

BackgroundEdit

As one of the youngest terrestrial television stations in the Philippines, it was created when Philippine Congress granted a franchise under Republic Act No. 8219 (unfortunately, it was lapsed into law) on September 12, 1997, and duly licensed by the NTC dated January 10, 2007.

It was launched on March 19, 2007. In 2008, CLTV 36 relegated to an all-news and infotainment channel. It was on the same year that the station received the first KBP Golden Dove Award (Sonia Soto - Best Provincial Public Affairs Program Host). From 2007, CLTV 36 pioneered the extensive and most updated coverage of national and local elections and natural disasters that hit the region including typhoons, northeast monsoon, among others. In 2013, CLTV 36 launched their entertainment programming thru the StarMill Talent Search.

CLTV 36 focuses on a centralized media coverage from news, public affairs and infotainment programming, covering all the provinces of Central Luzon. These are the provinces of Nueva Ecija, Bulacan, Bataan, Tarlac, Zambales, Aurora and its homebase, Pampanga. CLTV 36 can also be seen in major areas in Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Ilocos Region, and Cordillera Administrative Region (except Batangas, Laguna and Quezon) thru its signal reception from its transmitter in Clark Freeport Zone. The tower was inaugurated on December 9, 2015.[3][4]

CLTV 36 is the official broadcaster of the Giant Lantern Festival every December from 2007 and the United Central Luzon Athletic Association games since 2015.[5][6]

CLTV 36 was honored as the three-time Best Provincial TV station by the KBP Golden Dove Awards, organized by the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP) for the 2012, 2014 and 2015 edition, along with the award for their programs Balitang Central Luzon (now Metro Central Luzon Ngayon) (Best TV Newscast, Provincial) and So To Speak (two-time Best TV Public Affairs Program, Provincial).

In time for the station's 9th anniversary, on April 2, 2016, CLTV 36 was rebranded as CLTV 36 Metro Central Luzon.[7] Along with the station's rebranding was its new theme song performed which was by Chocolate Factory Band, Jeneal Mariano and Andy Pangan.[8]

On its 10th anniversary, the station reverted to its original name CLTV 36 with its new slogan, "The Region's Infotainment Channel".

On January 7, 2018, the station reverted to its original slogan, "One Region, One Station". Currently, the slogan is now "Championing Local Pride," which is based on the channel's 12th anniversary theme in 2019.

On March 22, 2019, CLTV 36, through the celebration of its 12th anniversary, held its inaugural Social Services Conference and Expo (SocSeCon) at Robinsons Starmills in City of San Fernando, Pampanga.

On June 26, 2020, despite challenges brought by the coronavirus pandemic, CLTV 36 has launched #SaleseMuRin with the re-usage of their 2011 station theme, "Tawag ng Panahon".

On May 14, 2021, CLTV 36 revealed it's new logo during 14th anniversary replacing the 2007 logo with additional programming lineup for 2021.
