CBC re weeklies

CBC has caught up to Quebecor's closing of small Alberta weeklies.

A Montreal-based media conglomerate has stopped printing two small Alberta newspapers, and the office of another paper has been closed, says today's story.

TSF reported the closing of the Jasper Booster and the Morinville Redwater Town & Country Examiner and the transfer of the Nanton News weekly to High River in the past couple of weeks.

Tipsters say the publisher of another Alberta weekly was pink slipped this week and there are rumblings of more layoffs and closures.

The CBC wraps up today's story with: No one from Quebecor was available to speak to CBC News about the decisions.

Now that is surprising.

  1. Sun Media shut down the Mayerthorpe Freelancer Office in December and now it is running out of Whitecourt Star Office.
