Edmonton -3

TSF rarely hears from the Edmonton Sun, except when it involves departures - forced or voluntarily.

An email yesterday from a tipster says three more newsroom staffers have left the building: Jason Franson, an award-winning photographer, and reporters Alyssa Noel and Clara Ho.

"With more rumours of more people leaving in the future," says the tipster. "Unhappy staff are leaving the sinking ship."

Just what is the Edmonton Sun newsroom body count these days?


  1. And this company's bean counters just smile and high-five one another.

    Best of luck to them, there's definitely better beyond Quebecor because lord help us all if there's isn't.

  2. It's really too bad, Jason Franson is a great photographer and I'm sure his images will missed greatly at that paper. But I'm sure he will be moving onto better things and will get better treatment where ever he ends up. Good luck to all who have left.

  3. Three classy individuals. Good luck to you all.

  4. Congratulations to you all for getting out of that toxic environment. A whole new world of respect and appreciation will open up to you.

  5. Alyssa and Clara are both good young journalists. To bad for Sun readers.
    New publisher at the Sun - is there a connection?

  6. New Editor in Chief since 2009, that's the difference. I know I work there. Good luck to all of you.
