Ottawa’s Capital City News
Ottawa has recently seen the launch of a new local community newspaper, Capital City News. Produced by Sun Media as a grass roots publication, the newspaper is published in weekly neighbourhood variants across the region.
“We’ve been trying to get to as many communities as we can, so that’s been our challenge…trying to get to as many places as we can across the city,” said the publications’s editor Jason Marshall in a story in the The Ottawa Sun. “We’ll be going to 167,000 homes from Orleans to Stittsville, and points in between.”
We received a copy at the Thornley Fallis Communication’s Ottawa office last week, the Orleans edition. It contained one news story, five news in briefs, one sports story among all the PR stories and advertisements. The real value for readers seems limited, but advertisers will be happy to reach so many homes.
