Canada’s cross-country ski magazine, Ski Trax, has its 1992-93 rate card out.

The smallest display ad, 1/24th-page, costs $145. A full page costs $1,075. Special positioning rates run from $1,075 for the bottom half of the front page to twice that for a two-page centre spread.

There are also frequency discounts worth up to 15% off the rate card.

For the 1992-93 season, Ski Trax expects an average of 15,000 copies will be published for each of its four issues.

Expansion plans for the season include extensive direct mail subscription drives across Canada and the u.s. to ski club and association members; beginning newsstand circulation south of the border; and increased availability of Ski Trax in retail ski stores across the continent.

The next Ski Trax is out in October. After that is the holiday issue in November, and the Jan./Feb. ’93 and March/Spring ’93 issues. The magazine publishes four times a year.

- The magazine of black Canadian achievement, Glory, has ceased operations.

A quarterly published from Toronto, Glory’s first issue went out December 1991 and the last issue followed nine months later.

- The CTV Television Network has won a Gold Medallion Award at the 1992 Broadcast Promotion and Marketing Executives awards competition.

Five ctv affiliates also picked up gold and silver awards in the local tv categories. They were CFCF-12 in Montreal, cfqc-tv in Saskatoon, ckck-tv in Regina, chek-tv in Victoria and ckco in Kitchener, Ont.

cfto-tv in Toronto won a bronze award at the Broadcaster Designers’ Association competition held at the same time.

Both competitions were held June 17 in Seattle.

- Canada Day marked Standard Radio’s official takeover of AM106/ CJAY-FM in Calgary and cfrn/cjke-fm in Edmonton.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission approved the purchase June 19.

Toronto-based Standard Radio did not disclose the purchase price of its new stations.

The company also owns cfrb and MIX.99.9 in Toronto, cjad and MIX 96 in Montreal, 54 ROCK in Ottawa, and cktb and htz-fm in St. Catharines, Ont.
