Toronto Sun Won't Take On Herald: Toronto Sun Publishing Corp. has decided against joining forces with the Hearst Corp. to convert the Los Angeles Herald Examiner into a tabloid, said John McCabe, general manager and chief operating officer of the Herald Examiner. The Toronto Sun, which publishes several successful tabloids in Toronto and other Canadian cities, said it was too involved in other ventures to take on the money-losing Herald. McCabe said he didn't know whether Hearst was looking for another partner.
