A number of people joined The Athletic in September.
Some personal news. I am excited to announce that starting Monday I will be joining @TheAthletic ?? as their senior editor.
I’ve been an avid reader since the launch of @TheAthleticTO and I’m still a little shocked that I get to be a part of this juggernaut.

Winnipeg, I couldn't be more excited to be sharing this: I'm officially joining @TheAthleticWPG to cover the Jets full time.
My goal with this dream job is to be your source for the best, deepest Jets stories and analysis.

I didn't write a letter because I'm not nearly as cool/talented/important as many of the writers at The Athletic – but I'm really excited to say that I've joined @TheAthleticTO as a general assignment reporter, covering all the sports my heart desires!

My first byline as a staff reporter at the Toronto Star. Not a bad first day with the new team. https://t.co/v3WH4YtuoC
— Stefanie Marotta (@StefanieMarotta) September 11, 2018
hi, i've just started a gig as an Indigenous reporter with Huffington Post.
send me your thoughts, opinions, frustrations and tips for making good bannock because mine is always too dense.

Tomorrow I start my final 2 weeks at CHCH news. I’m so grateful for the last 11 years there… starting out as an intern, then a production assistant, working up on the assignment desk as… https://t.co/cdA146SIPm
— Britt Dixon (@BrittDixonTV) September 9, 2018
I’m no longer an intern! I’ll be sticking around @CPOntario for awhile as the new part-time reporter ?? so please send me news tips ? firstname.lastname@example.org ?
— Alanna Rizza (@AlannaRizza) September 8, 2018
I've said this before, but: this was my last week at 1 Yonge. That building is full of talented, patient, hard-working, awe-inspiring journalists. From the Star, to Metro, to StarMetro it was an honour and a joy to work alongside them.

I’m teaching a journalism class at @MacEwanU this fall, and I’ve decided on a style somewhere between Michelle Pfeiffer in Dangerous Minds and the scary nuns I had in Catholic School. pic.twitter.com/HYB6n8h4mD
— Jana G. Pruden (@jana_pruden) September 6, 2018
He’s too modest to tell you himself, so: The Globe’s deeply-sourced auto/steel reporter, @GregKeenanGlobe, is retiring later this month. Going to miss his intel-gathering abilities on the NAFTA front
— Adrian Morrow (@AdrianMorrow) September 6, 2018
Personal note here folks: starting Monday I will be starting up in my new role as Assistant Program Director/ Senior Producer at SN590! Thanks to all of you who have listened to shows I’ve produced over the last 11 years since the Chuck Swirsky Show back in 07!! Getting old.. 🙂

Personal news: starting next week, I’m going to be on the Canucks beat full-time for @provincesports. Start sending in your complaints now.
— Patrick Johnston (@risingaction) September 5, 2018
I've got what the Twitter world calls "some personal news" to share!
— Sharon J. Riley (@sharonjriley) September 4, 2018
My first Star byline! TLDR: your prof might be broker than you are. https://t.co/6qbJo6sQib
— Jack Hauen (@jackhauen) September 4, 2018
In personal news, I’m excited to be joining the outstanding Canadian Press team as Montreal bureau chief.
— Graeme Hamilton (@grayhamilton) September 4, 2018
Very excited to announce the dogged and badass @sabrinananji will be joining Queen's Park Today this fall as our head reporter. Sabrina covered QP for years and was most recently the Toronto Star's democracy reporter. #cdnmediamoves

Sincere post: my time at the Globe has ended and I have some people to shout out.
— Jack Hauen (@jackhauen) September 1, 2018
Well, my time at The Globe and Mail has come to an end. It was a relentless news cycle this summer, and one that I was proud to cover with some of the best journalists in the country. As a young reporter, @globeandmail has always been a dream, and I'm glad that dream came true.
— Nadine Yousif (@nadineyousif_) September 1, 2018
Yesterday was my last day at The Globe and Mail. It's been an honour learning about the world of business at @globebusiness and to play a small part in this giant news machine.
— Salmaan Farooqui (@SalmaanFarooqui) September 1, 2018
Today was my last at the @mtlgazette and I couldn’t be happier that they shipped me over from Toronto. Everyone I worked with was so helpful and I’m coming out of it a more well-rounded journalist (and 10,000% more strict about SEOs)
— Jacob Dubé (@Ewiththeaccent) August 31, 2018
Yesterday was my last at the @globeandmail. Extraordinarily grateful for the opportunity and the people I met there. And also the snack drawer, the standing desks, the sunsets over the evening shift, and the guy who restocks the vending machine who gave me a free Oh Henry once
— Audrey Carleton (@audreycarleton1) September 1, 2018
So before any more NAFTA news breaks, some ~personal~ news: Today is my last day at the Financial Post. Next month I join Yahoo Finance, which is expanding its coverage of Canadian business. So grateful for my time at the Post, and the chance to work with such an incredible team.
— Alicja Siekierska (@alicjawithaj) August 31, 2018
After more than 40 years with @GlobalNews, tonight we celebrated Jim Stewart’s retirement. A cameraman beyond reproach. The news world is hard to live in, hard to last in, and hard to leave. Jimmy did all three, and did them with grace and kindness. pic.twitter.com/paSPtVQp2p
— Mackay Taggart (@mackaytaggart) August 31, 2018
Last day of work @Chatelaine called for a pair of Chatz-kickers. ??
Will be rolling up the ol Patsy poster later, after getting one last assignment filed. So lucky to have been able to do journalism here, I will miss it. ?? pic.twitter.com/nzfEONmduR
— Sarah Boesveld (@sarahboesveld) August 31, 2018
BUT: starting sept. 10, i will be joining the @globeandmail.
an accurate statement would be: i am delirious with excitement. ???
