Star re 333

The Toronto Star says Quebecor has confirmed the sale of 333 King Street East, home to the Toronto Sun since 1975, is being considered.

It took a typo in Now magazine to bring the pending sale to light. One source tells TSF an announcement could be made as early as next week.

A Quebecor spokesperson told the Star only a third of the building's 300,000 square feet is being used.

Funny how that works. Disembowel six floors of a once thriving newspaper and shut down its internal presses and suddenly there is a lot of free space.

Sad days, indeed.

But we'll always have memories of all six floors filled with fiercely loyal and competent Toronto Sun colleagues enjoying the glory days of the tabloid, when the news - and readers - were Front Row Centre.
