Contact Newspaper Changes Hands

The Contact newspaper at CFB Trenton is the latest acquisition of Metroland Media….resulting in the layoff of six employees. As of Monday, the 8-Wing newspaper is part of the Toronto Star family of newspapers. Deputy Manager of the 8-Wing’s Personnel Support Programs Todd Peddle says under a third party service provider it will be self-supportive. He says finances led to the decision.
The six employees include three full-time staff, one part-time and two contracted sales staff.
Peddle says the Contact is headed for print today and should be on the news stands on Friday.
