SUN TV NEWS Announces New Additions

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 22, 2010) - Gemini-nominated journalist Krista Erickson, and columnist Ezra Levant are the latest additions to the growing SUN TV NEWS team. Pierre Karl Péladeau, President and CEO of Quebecor Inc., Quebecor Media Inc. and Sun Media Corporation made the announcement today speaking to the Economic Club of Canada in Calgary. Krista Erickson joins the hard news team as a reporter and daytime news anchor. Ezra Levant will bring his outspoken nature to prime time as a straight talk host.

"I am very pleased to have Krista and Ezra join the hard news, straight talk SUN TV NEWS team," said Mr. Péladeau. "Both of them have the experience and personality we are looking for to deliver a new and exciting product for Canadians."

"With her extensive track record in the hard news business, Krista will add depth and perspective to the breaking stories of the day," added Mr. Péladeau. "Ezra isn't afraid to challenge conventional wisdom. Whether it's his national crusade for freedom of speech, or his refreshing and contrarian take on the oilsands. Fans and foes alike won't want to miss a minute of his show."

"Along with SUN TV NEWS host Charles Adler, Krista and Ezra all hail from Western Canada. With SUN TV NEWS the west will be in," concluded Péladeau.

Krista Erickson's career began in 1999 in her hometown of Winnipeg at CBC Manitoba. In 2004, she was appointed host of CBC Manitoba's supperhour newscast "CBC News at Six". A frequent contributor to CBC network programs, "Marketplace" and "The National", Erickson joined CBC's Parliamentary bureau as a network correspondent in 2006 where she specialized in public safety and national security issues and consumer affairs.

A lawyer by profession, Levant first started writing for the Calgary Sun in 1995 and his articles are also published in the Edmonton Sun. He was the founder of the Western Standard news magazine, and is the author of bestselling books, including "Shakedown" and the recently released "Ethical Oil."
