Press Review is back on the market

    Canada's premiere media magazine is seeking a new publisher to take over
    where the late founder Mike Cassidy left off.

    TORONTO, Nov. 19 /CNW/ - The widow of Mike Cassidy - founder of legendary
Canadian media magazine Press Review - is selling the shares or Assets of the
publication founded in 1976 by her late husband, a WWII veteran and POW.
    Canada's premiere magazine specializing in media issues boasts a 30-year
record of publication. The company is in good standing without due balances.
Its revenue in 2006 was $40,000, derived from well-respected national
corporate advertisers.

    Press Review is a magazine with a sterling reputation throughout the
industry. It is distributed in large and small newsrooms across the nation. It
has a national mailing database consisting of 2,500 media and public relations
contacts and is directly distributed to more than 4,000 media professionals,
journalism schools, corporate and government communications representatives in
Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal.
    Cassidy's widow, who inherited the magazine and is its sole owner, is
looking for a visionary who would see the potential of this publication and
keep her late husband's legacy alive. She is prepared to accept $15,000 (or
best offer) for the company that has been run by small number of volunteers.
    A brief information package is available upon request.

    "Press Review has played an invaluable role keeping Canadian journalists
    in touch with their craft,"
    - John Honderich, publisher, The Toronto Star, September 2001.
