I have some personal news to share. After the best 17 years of my life I have decided to leave @City_tv. Today is bittersweet. In late June I’ll be joining @CBCNews as Managing Editor of News Programming overseeing @CBCTheNational, @CBCWorldReport, @FrontBurnerCBC and others. pic.twitter.com/7qeAnPMVYs

Here are the rest of the media on the move from May 9 to 22:
Some personal news (that is not personal, and not really news, because not much will change): after a long while of doing special projects and jumping around the province, the municipal politics job at CBC British Columbia has been made permanent.
And, um, I'll be doing it.
