Vancouver is the centre of the province's news media, with most national media chains having an office in the city.

English-language media

Both of the city's major daily newspapers, The Vancouver Sun and The Province, are published by the Pacific Newspaper Group Inc. In recent years, The Globe and Mail, a national newspaper based in Toronto, has added a section for local content in an effort to improve its circulation in Vancouver.

Other newspapers include the free 24 Hours (a local free daily), the Vancouver franchise of the national free daily Metro, the twice-a-week Vancouver Courier, and the Westender. Independent newspapers include The Georgia Straight (a weekly), Xtra West, The Republic and Only.

The Vancouver market is unusual in Canada in that both of its major daily newspapers, as well as the Courier weekly, are all published by the same company, a subsidiary of CanWest Global Communications.

Television stations include CBC, Citytv, CTV and Global BC. Radio stations with news departments include CBC Radio One, CKNW and News 1130.

Multicultural media

The diverse ethnic make-up of Vancouver's population supports a rich range of multicultural media.

There are three Chinese-language dailies: Ming Pao, Sing Tao Daily and World Journal.

Television station OMNI British Columbia produces daily newscasts in Cantonese, Mandarin, Punjabi and Korean, and weekly newscasts in Tagalog, as well as programs aimed at other cultural groups, although programming in European languages has waned in favour of Asian content since change to the current ownership. Fairchild Group also has two television stations: Fairchild TV and Talentvision, serving Cantonese and Mandarin speaking audiences respectively.

The Franco-Columbian community is served by Radio-Canada outlets CBUFT channel 26 (Télévision de Radio-Canada), CBUF-FM 97.7 (Première Chaîne) and CBUX-FM 90.9 (Espace musique).

Vancouver is also home to British Columbia's longest running Ukrainian radio program, Nash Holos.
