About Us


BRANT.one provides information relevant to you. We cover local, regional, national and international headlines as well as local weather, sports, entertainment and traffic. We also highlight the organizations, service groups and businesses making a difference in our community.

We strive to be the leader and main provider of news, weather, and information in Brantford and the surrounding areas. We’re a platform for the community to share its talents, and enrich the lives of our viewers and sponsors.

The programming is free for viewers and aimed at the increasing number of people “cutting the cord” to traditional services. Essentially, BRANT.one combines the magic of television with today’s technology! There is no log-in or registration required to enjoy our programming, and through our unique partnership with Wilfred Laurier University, students can gain the training and experience to step into the world of media production.
