Lone Pine Publishing Acquires Company’s Coming Cookbooks in Edmonton

lone-pine-publishing AlbertaThe big news in the media landscape in Alberta this month is the acquisition of Company’s Coming by Lone Pine Publishing, both of Edmonton. Sources tell me the purchase took place in November 2010 but was not officially announced until February 2011 and in May, the Lone Pine Publishing offices moved to the Company’s Coming offices at 2311 – 96 Street, between the Whitemud Freeway and Anthony Henday Drive. Company’s Coming has been publishing cookbooks in Edmonton for 25 years. They are now up to 100 books and published around the world.

Media Moves at Edmonton Radio & TV Stations According to Marty

Media Moves at TV and Radio Stations in EdmontonA tip of the hat to Marty Forbes from the Edmonton Sun for reporting in his May 16, 2011 column that Corey Klimm and Ami Amato have left Now FM in Edmonton for the Z95 in Toronto, that Al Ford has added programming to his operations manager position for Rogers as well as the programming of SONIC. No wonder he scooped up the Program Director of the Year this spring at Canadian Music Week. He made sure the odds were in his favour! Marty also answered a question asked by many: what happened to Seanna Collins and Ron Clark? He reported that Seanna is still freelancing, doing the Save-On-Foods commercials and pitch hitting on the Lorraine Mansbridge Show on Global Edmonton while Ron Clark is busy running his new contracting and landscaping business. Over at CTV Edmonton he notes that Carrie Doll is due back in June from her mat leave just in time for Erin Isfeld for hers (how’s that for job sharing?). Sharing the parenting duties is Joel Gotlib on paternity leave for baby number two. What’s in the water at CTV Edmonton?
