Alex MacPherson, Saskatchewan’s best-known business journalist, leads a team that includes Peter Lozinski, also in Saskatoon and Evan Radford and Nathan Meyer in Regina.
The online publication will follow the subscription model successfully established in Atlantic Canada back in 2001 by news veteran David Bentley and his daughter, Caroline Wood.
Thirty journalists at sister titles allNovaScotia, allNewfoundlandLabrador and allNewBrunswick are now the primary source of must-have business, professional and government information for nearly 14,000 paid subscribers across the region.
"It's great to be in Saskatchewan," says executive editor Judy Myrden, explaining the province was selected as the most promising launch location after she and Bentley conducted an 18-month study of potential markets across Canada.
"We're convinced there is a real appetite for the quality and quantity of local business news we will be providing," says MacPherson.
Publishing five days a week, allSaskatchewan is available at an introductory monthly rate of $15, after which the regular rate enables up to three subscribers to sign in for $39 per month.
