Torstar Announces Roy Romanow is Standing for Election to Board of Directors and Martin Connell and Christina Gold are Retiring

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/30/07 -- Torstar Corporation (TSX: TS.B) today announced that Hon. Roy Romanow is standing for election to the Board of Directors at Torstar's Annual Meeting to be held on May 2, 2007. Mr. Romanow served as the Premier of Saskatchewan from 1991 until early 2001. He is a Senior Fellow in Public Policy in the Department of Political Studies at the University of Saskatchewan. He is also a corporate director and a Member of the Security Intelligence Review Committee (SIRC) an agency that provides Parliament and the Canadian public with an external review of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service. Hon. Frank Iacobucci, Chairman of Torstar Corporation, said "Roy Romanow is a Canadian of great distinction who has contributed richly to building a strong and progressive Canada. His experience, wisdom and judgment will be welcome additions to our deliberations."

Torstar also announced the retirement of Martin Connell and Christina Gold from the Board of Directors to take effect following Torstar's Annual Meeting on May 2, 2007.

Martin Connell has served on the Board of Directors for seventeen years. "Martin's own record of business leadership, progressive values and community involvement is a model for the values we prize. As Martin retires, we wish to express our gratitude for his long service and many contributions," said Hon. Frank Iacobucci.

Christina Gold has served on the Board of Directors for nine years. She is the Chief Executive Officer of Western Union and with the recent public listing of the company on the NYSE and her world-wide travel obligations, her schedule has made it too difficult for her to maintain her directorship with Torstar. Hon. Frank Iacobucci said "We will miss her valued contributions and continue to take pride in her as a Canadian woman providing leadership to an important global company."
