Next pitch you send, make sure you double check those email addresses as 2014 continues to be a year of transition for many of Canada’s top media voices. It’s only been a couple of months since we released our last 10 to follow: Media on the move list but a number of other key media have changed addresses in the time since. Here’s a rundown of 10 more Canadian media who are on the move:
Dave Breakenridge @SUNBreakenridge: Staying loyal to Sun Media family as his Twitter handle suggests he would, Dave moved from the Calgary Sun to the Edmonton Sun as its new editor-in-chief in June. Dave’s past roles include reporter, assistant city editor, associate news editor, columnist and most recently online content editor, all with the Calgary Sun.
Edward Keenan @keenanwire: Formerly the senior editor of the now-defunct magazine The Grid, Edward joins the Toronto Star as a columnist. Nominated for eight National Magazine awards, Edward is one of the most trusted voices in Toronto politics and civic matters.
Jackson Proskow @JProskowGlobal: A longtime Global News team member, Jackson has been named as Global National’s new Washington bureau chief. He’s replaced Robin Stickley, who will return to Global BC’s Early News in August.
