The region name has no connotation for it. In some on-air continuity announcements, the region is sometimes called TiBB1 Maritimes or TiBB1 serving the Atlantic provinces.

StudiosEdit

Maritimes Now is based in Halifax and it houses its own studios and its own control room operations. However, it has separate news bulletins from TiBB News for each province.
