TSF count updates

The Toronto Sun Family blog, launched early last December, has more than 360 posts covering a wide variety of topics from the first 35 years of the Toronto Sun and at its younger sister tabloids.

Three postings that continue to grow deal with the large number of men and women who have contributed to the success of the Toronto Sun over the decades.

Many are deceased, others have moved on and have found new careers.

Sun Family Links posting includes links to 32 personal and professional web and blog sites by former and current Toronto Sun employees, which is being used to reunite former colleagues.

(Personal or professional web sites and blogs can be added by e-mailing the links to TSF.)

TSF Authors contains an impressive list of 31 former and current Toronto Sun employees who are published authors, with new books being published and added throughout the year.

(Authors wanting to be added to the list can do so by e-mailing book title(s), publication year, publisher, number of pages and whether fiction or non fiction.)

The Departed posting now includes 21 profiles of Sun vets who are no longer with us.

(If friends, families or colleagues of the departed whose profiles are not online, please e-mail the contents of obits and other information.)


Numerous profiles of Toronto Sun employees hired in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.

(Not on the hired lists? You can be added by e-mailing a bio and photo.)

Media Job Sites now has 11 active job sites for newspaper people looking for employment in Ontario, across Canada and beyond.

Adding up the numbers - and the talent - from the first 35 years of the Toronto Sun tells the story behind the success of the Little Paper That Grew.

It truly is a North American media miracle, with full credit going to the 62 newspaper men and women, jobless after the Toronto Telegram folded in 1971, who gambled on the Sun.

The lone Sun survivors of that prestigious Day Oners club: Peter Worthington, Andy Donato, George Gross and Jim Thomson.
