Torstar and Enthusiast Gaming partner to bring news to Gen Z audience

Torstar and Enthusiast Gaming have announced a joint venture to create an online news platform aimed at Gen Z communities in English-speaking countries around the world.

The two companies say the new AFK platform will adopt a tone and format that’s familiar to fans of online video games like Fortnite and Call of Duty.

According to a report, Torstar’s chief client officer Mike Beckerman says advertisers have a great interest in reaching the Gen Z and millennial age groups, which include teens and young adults born since the early 1980s.

The AFK online platform is expected to go live in September.
