New newspaper company picks name Postmedia Network
The newly-formed company that is now in the process of acquiring the newspaper assets of CanWest Global Communications has selected the name Postmedia Network. "Postmedia Network reflects both where we have been and where we are going," said company president and CEO Paul Godfrey. "From the earliest days of information delivery via post, to the current online world of posting news and information as it happens and looking ahead to the continuous evolution of a post-media universe, our new name reflects both the strong legacy and the exciting future of media as we prepare to emerge as a new Canadian business." Once the transaction is completed, the company will own publications including the Vancouver Sun, Calgary Herald, Ottawa Citizen, Montreal Gazette and National Post, as well as their respective websites and online properties including Canada.com, Driving.ca, Working.com, Dose.ca and FPinfomart.ca.
