Name play

The Toronto Sun and TSF readers are already working the name play in welcoming Michael Power as the new publisher.

"Power to the people?" wrote one TSF reader.

The heading on today's online story by Jenny Yuen reads: "Sun has new Power"

TSF just hopes the new publisher isn't "Power happy."

Jenny's story quotes Power, 43, as saying: "I feel tremendously excited and privileged. I'm really looking forward to be working with great staff at a newspaper with a great history."

Power, the 11th publisher since Day One in 1971 and the sixth since the turn of this century, also says:

"I think editorial identity is important. Historically, we've had an edge and I'm not going to dull that at all."

Will the Little Paper That Once Grew get a "Power surge?"

Stay tuned.

So Michael, can we call you Mike?

And don't be a stranger to TSF.

Not a peep from Kin-Man Lee in the three years he was publisher.

Maybe it was that embarrassing Sun video.

  1. The good news is that PKP isn't planning to take on the job himself as he has in other cases.
