Nazareth returns

Updated link
The rebuilding of the Toronto Sun continues tomorrow with the return of Errol Nazareth, a music man whose layoff during the Quebecor cutbacks struck a sour note with readers.

Errol, a longtime Sun staffer we remember as a friendly, dedicated and eager-to-please young reporter when first hired by the tabloid, returns with a weekly Friday column called Rhythms & Rhymes.

A promo in Wednesday's Sun reads:

"Errol Nazareth is back! The former longtime Sun music columnist returns with a new weekly column titled Rhythms & Rhymes, Canada's foremost authority on hip hop and world-beat music will keep Sun readers apprised of all the cool things happening in, or coming to, Toronto.

"Catch Rhythms & Rhymes on Fridays, starting this week."

Google "Errol Nazareth" to appreciate the quality of his music commentary and reviews for the past 15 years or so.

His post-Sun freelance credits include "various newspapers, national magazines, and CBC radio programs."

Kudos to the Sun for reeling Errol back into the fold.

The "new" Sun under Sun Media chief Mike Sifton and Lou Clancy, editor-in-chief, is restoring our confidence in the tabloid.

What a difference a year makes.


  1. Hurrah - I've missed Errol's witty commentary! Amanda Cain

  2. Hey that is wonderful!
    Not only does Errol know a lot, but he's got an uncanny ability to convey his appreciation for music.

    Fantastic news!
