Quebec Chronicle Telegraph Has New Owner

PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph, North America’s oldest newspaper, is announcing today that an agreement to sell the newspaper to Mr. Ray Stanton of Ontario has been reached.  Mr. Stanton is a builder in Ontario.

Mr. Stanton reached out to Mr. Little in his interest to possibly help the newspaper. “I was surprised that interest came as far as Toronto, but very pleased that a new owner who shared our interest which was to continue the weekly printed edition of newspaper could be found.” Little Said.  “After many weeks of searching for a local buyer within the English community, without success, I was reassured after spending several hours meeting with Mr. Stanton at his Toronto office, that he was a man who could follow through”. Little Said.

“This is a great opportunity to save a newspaper with a history of 246 years, and you don’t find very many newspapers with that kind of history.  Once I looked through the editions Mr. Little had produced, I thought it was really professionally produced and very well designed and something I wanted to be involved with.  I am looking forward to working with the English community groups to increase it’s subscriptions.” Stanton Said.

The Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph, founded by William Brown (c. 1737-1789) as the Quebec Gazette on 21 June 1764. It is the oldest newspaper in North America. It is currently published as an English language weekly from its offices at 1040 Belvedere, in Quebec City, Canada.
