The CTV news crew are a pair of minor characters who appeared in Spell of the Unown: Entei. The reporter and her supporting cameraman work for a news corporation called CTV.
In the anime
The news crew traveled to Greenfield to report on the crystallization phenomenon that was spreading from the Hale mansion and enveloping the rest of the surrounding area. They captured footage of Entei kidnapping Ash's mother and later as Ash and his friends attempted to enter the Hale mansion.
The coverage kept Schuyler, Lisa, and Professor Oak informed while they waited inside the local Pokémon Center. Their footage also alerted Ash's Charizard to the crisis, and it flew to the Hale mansion from the Charicific Valley to assist Ash. The reporter and cameraman continued reporting, but they were kept away from much of the action by the crystalline matrix.
After Entei helped destroy the Unown and the crystallization subsequently receded, the news crew and their van were part of a car convoy that traveled to the Hale mansion to retrieve Ash and the others.
In the manga
In the movie adaptations
The news crew also appears in the manga adaptation, Emperor of the Crystal Tower: Entei, fulfilling the same role.
