The Toronto Sun is a publication of the city of Toronto in Canada. It is a newspaper that is published daily and maintains a line that can be considered conservative as well as populist.
Foundation and History
The first time the Toronto Sun was published was on November 1, 1971, after the Toronto Telegram ceased to circulate. Since there was no time lapse between the circulation of both newspapers and some of the writers switched to this new newspaper, it is considered to be a continuation.
The Toronto Sun has a British-style format similar to the London tabloids, in particular the one that shares the name The Sun. In the middle of the first decade of 2000, the use of The was stopped and it began to be known only as the Toronto Sun. Its first publisher was Peter Worrington and was the editor in chief from 1976 to 1982, resigning as a protest that the newspaper had been taken over by Maclean-Hunter.
Since 1975, the Toronto Sun newspaper has hosted the Toronto Sun building at 333 King East Street, with six floors where all mime operations took place. For 2010, this building was sold to the development company First Gulf, with operations remaining on the second floor of the building until 2016.
He is currently part of PostMedia, which bought Sun Media in 2015 from Quebecor. The headquarters is now at 365 Bloor East Street in the National Post building, maintaining two teams with separate lines from each other.
The motto of the Toronto Sun newspaper is “The Other Voice of Toronto”. They follow a line that maintains Canada’s conservative and neo-conservative position at the U.S. economic level. It tends to promote individuality, the independence of the individual and support for public order, as well as the work of the military in the country. They also tend to hold a position against high taxes and excessive government spending.
The Toronto Sun has several editors with various responsibilities. Currently, the position of editor-in-chief would be held by Adrienne Batra, who has been working on it since 2015 when it was acquiredby PostMedia.
Circulation and subscription
The Toronto Sun has had a decrease in the number of copies circulating per edition, this has happened with other Canadian newspapers. In 2007 there were about 180,000 copies circulating on Mondays to Saturdays and about 310,000 on Sundays. Between 2009 and 2015 there was a 36% drop in the number of copies per day, with 121,300 copies circulating per day and 142,376 on Sundays.
