Keenan, most recently the senior editor of The Grid until it shut down, is joining the Toronto Star as a city columnist. 

 By Tamara Baluja, Associate Editor

Ed Keenan is joining the Toronto Star as a full-time city columnist.

Previously Keenan was a senior editor at weekly magazine The Grid, which the Star’s parent company, Torstar, decided to shut down after three years earlier this month. Keenan has been nominated eight National Magazine Awards, according to his bio on The Grid.


Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly said that Keenan has won eight NMAs. In fact, he has been nominated eight times.
