Odds & ends

Peter Worthington has done it all during his lengthy media career, but was Tuesday's hockey column in the Toronto Sun's sports section a first for the tabloid's co-founder? If so, he looked right at home talking hockey.

Sandy Naiman, the Toronto Star's recently departed Coming Out Crazy columnist, has found a new home at PsycheCentral. The site intro reads: "The Toronto Star’s loss is our gain, and we are pleased and honored to host her blog . . . here on Psych Central."

Metro employees ratified a new contract Monday, leaving SONG with nine Sun Media spring contract negotiations at the Sarnia Observer, Chatham News, London Free Press, Simcoe Reformer, Stratford Beacon-Herald (advertising), Brantford Expositor, Niagara Falls Review, Belleville Intelligencer and Pembroke Observer.

With Torstar bidding for Canwest's newspapers, would success bring an end to the National Post and Toronto as home to four major paid dailies? A similar scenario was rumoured in 1998 when Torstar attempted to buy the Toronto Sun and the rest of Sun Media.
