TORONTO, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - Bill McDonald, Group Publisher, Metro English
Canada is pleased to announce the appointment of Greg Lutes to the position of
Publisher for Metro Halifax.
Greg is no stranger to Metro; he was Metro Toronto's first publisher and
he played a pivotal role in Metro's success in the first 4 years of
publishing. Greg left Metro in 2004 to take on the role of Publisher of the
Moncton Times & Transcript. Prior to joining Metro Toronto, he also worked for
several leading media companies in a variety of senior sales and management
roles. Greg brings an in-depth understanding of the media landscape in
Atlantic Canada, as well as the newspaper industry, to his new role.
Greg is thrilled about the opportunity in front of him, commenting: "It
is very exciting to be back with the Metro family. Halifax, with its young,
upwardly mobile population is the ideal market for the free daily - Metro."
Greg's position as Publisher of Metro Halifax is effective immediately.
Metro is the nation's No.1 free national daily newspaper brand and the
first national daily brand to publish in both official languages. In Canada,
Metro editions are published in Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary,
Edmonton and Vancouver. Metro targets 18-49 year olds and has a circulation
that now exceeds 825,000.

largest global newspaper. Metro is published in over 100 major cities in 21
countries across Europe, North & South America and Asia. Metro has a unique
global reach - attracting a young, active, well-educated Metropolitan audience
of over 20 million daily readers.
