The Chatham Daily News
The Chatham Daily News (CDN) is a newspaper distributed in the Chatham-Kent township located in the province of Ontario, Canada. It is overseen by the former Osprey Media Group, a regional chain of Canadian newspapers that in 2007 was taken over by the Sun Media division of Quebecor.
The Chatham Daily News is about local and international events. All its other sections are aimed purely at information on the province Chatham-Kent, whether entertainment, sports, cultural events, obituaries and others. It also has an excellent team of columnists who write regularly on it. In its digitized version, the newspaper publicizes the weather for the locality and allows users to subscribe so that they can receive it directly in their e-mail.
Origin and evolution
The Chatham Daily News began in the mid-1800s under the name of The Kent Advertiser, which shortly thereafter became the Chatham Weekly Banner. At the end of the same year it became known today as The Chatham Daily News. In 1920 it merged with the Chatham Daily Planet, continuing its publication to the present day.
The diary is propagated in printed and digital form. The latter is only published from Tuesday to Saturday. This means that the newspaper is not available in a web version on Sundays and Mondays. However, the news at the moment can be found on its official website online and through social networks that are only Facebook and Twitter.
In addition, the Ontario Public Library has dedicated itself to digitizing old information, so the most remote editions of the Chatham Daily News can be found there for now only from 1934.
News Image Project
In 1990 The Chatham Daily News made a donation to the Chatham Kent Provincial Museum, consisting of a collection of daily local news with records from 1946 to 1987. In 2013 Jessica Anne Glasgow, Thesis Director and Photographer at Ryerson University, considered all this in order to carry out her thesis project applied to the management and preservation of photographic press collections in museums and archives. Among its objectives was to explain in detail how photography has been a fundamental tool of communication through the ages.
Through this project, the author considers that the Chatham Daily News has collaborated in the construction of community identities of Chatham-Kent due to the capture of the daily life of the people of the area, becoming preserved portraits of the community that reflect who are the citizens who have been part of this province. In addition these photographs allow to identify relatives and withocidos.
