Today’s Senior Newsmagazine is a niche newspaper publication that talks directly to Seniors throughout the province of British Columbia.
HISTORY OF TODAY’S SENIOR
A short history of Todays’ Senior as it developed from The Resource Directories for Seniors to the Newsmagazine format.
THE ADVANCING YEARS
Started by Al and Mary Lou Bischoff of Langley, BC., and produced by Wally Coombs, who did the production for The Resource Directories. This was produced for one year and then sold to The Seniors Choice Newsmagazine of Kelowna.
THE SENIORS CHOICE
Joel and Darlene Rickard, from Kelowna, purchased the paper from The Bischoffs, with Wally Coombs to handle the Lower Mainland Edition for them. This was in effect for 2 1/2 years.
In December of 1995 the paper was taken over by Wally and Yvonne Coombs of Langley, B.C. It continued for a few years (with permission) as The Seniors Choice, until the Kelowna paper was sold to new owners. It then became Today’s Senior Newsmagazine.
TODAY’S SENIOR NEWSMAGAZINE
The paper continued under Wally and Yvonne Coombs until July of 2007 when it was sold to a new owner. Wally Coombs continued on as Publisher. Wally Coombs retired from Todays Senior in mid 2014.
