- Le Téléjournal
Local newscasts on Radio-Canada stations are also now branded as "Le Téléjournal" followed by the name of the city or region, e.g. "Le Téléjournal Montréal" on CBFT in Montreal. Until the early 2000s, local newscasts were separately branded as "Ce Soir" (This Evening). In 2006, Radio-Canada's breakfast newscast, "Matin Express", was rebranded as "Le Téléjournal/matin".
The flagship newscast is anchored by
Bernard Deromeon Mondays to Thursdays and Céline Galipeaufrom Fridays to Sundays. The newscast airs live at 9PM ET on RDI and 10PM local time (11PM in the Maritimes, 11:30PM in Newfoundland) on the local Radio-Canada stations.
Derome anchored the program from 1970 to 1998, when he was replaced by
Stéphan Bureau. Bureau anchored the program from 1998 until 2003, when he was replaced by Gilles Gougeon. Derome was brought back as anchor in 2004 in an effort to return the program to its earlier success. He is set to retire once again in January 2009. He will be replaced by Galipeau as weekday anchor, with Pascale Nadeausucceeding Galipeau as the weekend anchor.
