CKLT-DT (channel 9) is a television station in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, part of the CTV Television Network. Owned and operated by network parent Bell Media, the station has studios on Brunswick Square in Saint John, and its transmitter is located near Whitaker Lake in Petersville. It also operates analogue rebroadcast transmitters in Woodstock and Boiestown.

CKLT-DT is part of the CTV Atlantic regional system in The Maritimes. Although separately licensed, the station (along with its two rebroadcasters) is considered a full-time satellite of CKCW-DT in Moncton. Master control and most internal operations are based at CKCW's studios on Halifax and George Streets in Moncton.

Its programming is the same as that of CTV Atlantic flagship CJCH-DT in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with commercials provided from Moncton.


CKLT signed on for the first time on September 21, 1969, owned by Moncton Broadcasting along with CKCW-TV. As part of a complex realignment of television affiliations in the Maritimes, Saint John's original station, CHSJ-TV (now CBAT-DT) set up a translator in Moncton, enabling CKCW-TV to switch to CTV. CHUM Limited bought CKCW-TV and CKLT-TV in 1972 and merged them into the Atlantic Television System (ATV) later that year. Along with the rest of the ATV stations, it was sold to Baton Broadcasting on February 26, 1997[1] (with CRTC approval given on August 28, 1997[2]), enabling Baton to take control of CTV.
