Peace Country papers affected by Quebecor sale to Postmedia

Quebecor is selling its English-language Sun Media publications to Postmedia.

Several Peace Country dailies and weeklies are affected by the sale, including Grande Prairie’s Daily Herald Tribune, the Peace River Record-Gazette, the Fairview Post, and Whitecourt Star.

It’s a $316 million deal, subject to approval by the Competition Bureau.

Quebecor President and CEO Pierre Dion argues that newspaper revenues are declining, and the business needs consolidation to stay afloat.
