Rogers sells Ontario Out of Doors to Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters

Rogers Publishing has sold Ontario Out of Doors magazine to Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters. The magazine has been closely associated with OFAH and the magazine is said to be going to carry on with much the same management team, according to a memorandum to staff from Marc Blondeau, Senior Vice-President, Consumer Publishing.

Originally founded in 1969, OOD was purchased by Maclean Hunter in 1985. The December 2008 issue will be the final one produced by Rogers, Blondeau said.
I would like to stress that this decision was made following careful review of our long-term business strategy. We remain focused on growing our portfolio of brands in a strategic manner. We have absolutely no plans to sell any other properties.
Ontario Out of Doors principal competitor has been Outdoor Canada magazine, published by Transcontinental Media.
