In Business Since 1852
The Blackburn family has been in the Canadian media business for 160 years. Over the course of five generations the family has played a pioneering role in newspaper publishing, radio, television, database marketing and digital media.
In 1922 Arthur Blackburn was granted one of the first radio licenses in Canada. Since then Blackburn Media Inc. has established a successful tradition of marrying state-of-the-art technology with high quality local programming and community service.
