The following memo was sent to Toronto Star staff on June 6, 2016, from Michael Cooke, Toronto Star editor.

At her request, Jane Davenport, our Managing Editor, will move to a new role outside the newsroom and within Torstar, effective immediately.

Our newsroom’s loss is somewhat softened by Torstar ‘s gain as Jane will no doubt make a considerable contribution in her new job.

During Jane’s tenure as Managing Editor she has helped energize our journalism and she has been in a relentless pursuit of the Star’s trifecta of  major story-types : investigations, exclusives, and actions.

On a personal note, I shall miss being alongside her intelligence, enthusiasm, energy and her extraordinary work ethic.

I hope to be able to make an announcement later this week regarding Jane’s successor.

Sincerely,

Michael
