Cody Ventures Corporation (OTC: CDYV) the Tidbits Master Publisher for the State of Texas in Discussions to Acquire Additional States as Master Publisher

CEDAR HILL, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 4, 2005 -- Tarja Mees, CEO of Cody Ventures Corporation (OTC: CDYV), said that after successfully reaching an agreement with Tidbits Media, Inc. to become the Tidbits Master publisher for the State of Texas, Cody and Tidbits Media, Inc. realized the national potential of Cody's reach using Cody's Texas expansion plans as a model. Mrs. Mees stated further that Cody and Tidbits Media, Inc. are in discussions for State Master Publisher agreements for Cody in a number of additional States. More news will follow as events materialize from discussions.

Tidbits Media, Inc. currently has over 170 Independent Tidbits publishers in the United States covering over 1,500 towns and cities in over 240 counties. The Tidbits publication was first published over 10 years ago and currently has over 3.5 million readers weekly.

Mrs. Mees reiterated that Cody's expansion in Texas could result in yearly revenues of over $150 million and a circulation over 5 million copies of Tidbits weekly. Cody's vision encompasses the building of a national advertising, printing and publishing empire, both wholly owned and with strategic alliances. Such a nationally structured company with the uniqueness of Tidbits creating strong reader demand and its very unique and effective distribution methods creating results for advertisers, will either become a candidate for acquisition by one of the major national newspaper publishers, or could become an acquisition-oriented company itself.

Mrs. Mees added, "The Company's initial Tidbits publication, which is now over 2 years old with 109 weekly Issues in print, has been wildly accepted within its distribution area. Our readers appreciate all of the fun and interesting trivia and puzzles that the publication provides, and our advertisers are provided a perfect medium to be seen by interested readers."
