New Alb. paper

The newest independent Canadian weekly staffed by former Sun Media employees is Alberta's Strathmore Times, launched a few days ago.

One TSF tipster says the publisher, ad manager and production manager are former employees of Sun Media's Strathmore Standard.

Another TSF tipster writes:

"A birdie whispered in our ear that former Strathmore (Standard) publisher Mario Prusina, axed in the last round of (Sun Media) cuts, has started up a new weekly in Strathmore.

"The fledgling newspaper apparently launched this week. It's nice to know that even though the company no longer believes in newspapers, that employees who have given their hearts and souls to the business still do.

"God bless Mario! You give us all hope."

  1. New TMC paper called the Strathmore Times against Sun Media's paid circ (not for long) Strathmore Standard. Not only is the publisher editor from the Standard but they attracted the long time ad manager and production manager as well. Haven't seen anything web related yet but it's obvious from their first issue that they're not rookies.
