Calgary newspapers help this community keep its individuality secure in so many ways.  Every city has its own characteristics, and Cowtown is no exception.

When you visit Calgary you'll feel a Calgarian flavour prevailing in the air of city. Get into it! Calgary resembles a small world in itself. The city sports, venues, music and, of course, news don't let you forget that you are in Calgary.

Speaking of news, Calgary has a lot of newspapers and broadcasting stations to inform you about local and international news. We have a number of papers in Calgary so let's start with the biggest ones.

The Calgary Herald newspaper, The Calgary Sun with their famous Calgary Sun Classifieds, FFWD, The Calgary Real Estate News, the Bargain Finder and the U of C Gauntlet.

The major dailies include the Calgary Herald, Calgary Sun and the national papers: The National Post and The Globe and Mail. Some of the favourite local columnists are Don Braid, Mike Bell and, not too long ago, Catherine Ford. And one of my choices, David Parker.

Though there are a lot of other big and small newspapers the ones listed above form a thorough introduction to the publishing landscape here.

The Calgary Herald is the largest and most well established of the Calgary newspapers. It keeps us up on large and small news items in Calgary as well as outside the city limits. In it, you'll see

  • Calgary Herald obituaries,
  • many advertisements, commercial and classified,
  • several specialty sections which vary day by day,
  • sports,
  • weather and
  • entertainment.
And comics, don't forget the comics.

The second largest of the Calgary newspapers is The Calgary Sun. A member of the Sun Publishing national conglomerate, this paper provides the same basics as the Herald, plus a list of features of its own.

For comparison The Herald seems to be more of a sombre tone newspaper whereas the Sun is a bit more commercial and fun with lighter news coverage. And more ads.

You could compare the Herald to Google and the Sun to Yahoo. If your thing is to look online instead, the papers' respective sites are Canada.com and Calgarysun.com.

If you would rather do your own site, find out how to be successful at it.
