July 30 (Reuters) - Canada's Torstar Corp reported a 7 percent decline in revenue at its media business, which publishes the country's largest daily newspaper, the Toronto Star.

Revenue in the media business fell to C$237.3 million ($218.45 million) as the company continued to struggle with low print advertising sales.

The Toronto-based publisher said net income from continuing operations rose to C$18.1 million, or 23 Canadian cents per share, for the second quarter ended June, from C$12.6 million, or 16 Canadian cents per share, a year earlier.
