CTVglobemedia (often abbreviated "CTVgm" or CGM), was one of Canadas largest private media companies. Its operations included newspaper publishing (The Globe and Mail), television broadcasting and production (CTV, Inc.), radio broadcasting (CHUM Radio), and their respective Internet properties. Originally established by BCE Inc. and the Thomson family in 2001 combining CTV Inc., which Bell had acquired the previous year, and the operations of the Thomsons' The Globe and Mail, the group was owned by those two parties as well as Torstar and the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan. In September 2010, Bell announced plans to re-acquire full control of the groups broadcasting assets. At the same time, it was announced that the Thomson family would regain majority control of the Globe and Mail Inc.; this part of the deal, which did not require regulatory approval, was completed in January 2011. The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) approved the Bell/CTV portion of the deal in March 2011. The company was renamed Bell Media when the deal closed in April 2011, with Bells sympatico.ca Internet portal becoming part of Bell Media.
