Here are all the rest of the media on the move in August:
In four days, I’ll be finished with Metroland Media. This means I’ll be open to any and all freelance opportunities. If you think I’d be a good fit for your outlet, please get in touch. I’ve written for The Globe and Mail, Sportsnet and Vice Sports and have samples available.

Real excited to be joining @seleross at Maisy. I've loved this magazine for years, and I'm thrilled to have a chance to make my mark on it.
And writers, I don't even have a Maisonneuve email just yet, but please keep me in mind for story pitches — DMs are open. https://t.co/Lxtdg0GE1w

Today is my last day at @CityNews. I’ve been a journalist for over a decade – and always will be at heart – but it’s time for a twist in my own story. I’m very excited to announce that I’m joining the incredible team @Metrolinx. (2/3)

Some sad news to report: this week, I was laid off from my job at Xtra. I just want to thank my very talented coworkers, and especially the many, many LGBT folks from around Canada and the world who shared their stories with me these past three years.

Some personal news. Last week was my final one with the National Post. After 20 years, I decided to take a buyout and move on to new professional challenges, specifics to be determined.

Hi, this is my new desk! Very excited to join @upheremag as associate editor in Yellowknife. Glad to be back in the north and back in the game (back in journalism…I'm a terrible hockey player so that stick is staying in the office) https://t.co/h5tK87gwHW

Hi, yes, here is me in 43 degree weather in Death Valley feelin' good, akin to how I feel right now having accepted a job @yukon_news in Whitehorse, where I will be covering territorial politics. I've had a fun, rewarding year @TorontoStar. A few notes to follow about that pic.twitter.com/tPXH7SYB41

It's my last day at Global after 19 years, 33 on radio/TV in Calgary, 41 in broadcasting. I anchor the Noon News, write my final story on my secret passion collecting Hot Wheels, then say goodbye 5/6 newscasts. Thank you everyone. It's been a great time. @GlobalCalgary #yyc
