Live at 5:30 is a Canadian television news program that airs weekdays on CP24 from 5:30 - 6:00 p.m. Starting in July 2017, CTV Toronto started to simulcast the program in addition to the earlier Live at 5.
Live at 5:30 was created as a result of budget cuts at Rogers Media's Citytv stations across Canada which included the cancellation of their 5 p.m. newscast for Toronto, the program first aired on January 19, 2010.
The CP24 studio is located on the second floor of 299 Queen Street West. Large north-facing windows look out towards Queen Street. The set and newsroom is home to Live at 5:30 and most of the other CP24-produced programming.
