Despite what many pundits predicted, Ted Rogers – at least for now – will hang on to Maclean Hunter’s publishing assets rather than sell them off piecemeal.

Among those assets are a 62% stake in Toronto Sun Publishing, Maclean’s magazine, Chatelaine, L’actualite, and more than 100 trade titles.

However, Rogers Communications will sell off its Maclean Hunter publishing interests in the u.s. and Europe.

Rogers needs permission from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission to buy Maclean Hunter’s radio, tv and cable properties.
