    TORONTO, Nov. 1 /CNW/ - OutdoorPartner Media Corporation (TSXV: OPX) (the
"Company"), a leading alternative out-of-home media provider, is pleased to
announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Prime Point Media, has extended its
payphone advertising agreement with Verizon through 2014 (the "Extension").

Verizon payphone locations in New York City upon regulatory approval.
    "Verizon has been a great business partner and we look forward to
continuing to work together over the next seven years," stated OutdoorPartner
Chief Executive Officer, Mark Brodkin. "An extended relationship - on
favorable terms - with the largest payphone provider in the U.S. is a
cornerstone of the continued success of our payphone kiosk advertising network
which incorporates over 350 individual payphone companies."
    "Verizon is very pleased to extend its advertising agreement with Prime
Point Media," said Gerard Doolan, manager, kiosk advertising for Verizon
Public Communications. "We look forward to continued successes in wrapped
advertising and exploring the additional opportunities with Prime Point Media
