A media directory that's user-friendly and affordable

"And it's for people who have been waiting for a media directory that's professionally cross-indexed by subject, language, media type, and geographical location. In short, it's for organizations and companies who want a high-quality media list at a reasonable price."

Media Names & Numbers offers complete coverage of:

ˇ National, local and cable TV stations
ˇ Radio stations
ˇ Daily newspapers
ˇ Community newspapers
ˇ Ethnic publications
ˇ Campus newspapers
ˇ Consumer magazines
ˇ Trade magazines
ˇ Scientific and scholarly journals
ˇ Newsletters
ˇ Press galleries
ˇ Selected directories

Media Names & Numbers
is designed to meet the needs of anyone who needs detailed comprehensive information about all of Canada's print and broadcast media, including those engaged in media relations, public relations, marketing, and advertising.
