30 - Ted Rogers

Ted Rogers, who died early today at 75, briefly entered the Toronto Sun Family fold in 1994 when he bought Maclean Hunter Ltd. for $3 billion.

Two years later, Rogers sold his 62.5% share in Sun Publishing, ending his brief ties to the tabloid before Sun employees warmed up to him as an owner.

Tributes to the late cable king are flowing in today. As for obits, the Globe and Mail's Gordon Pitts has a thorough replay of Ted's life and times.
