Here are all the rest of the media on the move in October and September:
Personal: Today is my last day at @Leth_Herald as I'm heading north to be the editor of the High Level Echo-Pioneer.
Working in Lethbridge these past three years has been an amazing experience and I've learned a lot. This is a great city and I'll miss most of you very much!

some ~personal news~
After more than 3 years at BuzzFeed News in Toronto, next Friday marks my last day at the company. I'm moving to New York to be with my partner and to freelance for a while. If you're an editor and I send you a pitch, you'd better fucking read it. (Please.)

Some personal news:
I’m moving to @financialpost, where I’ll be the new investing reporter. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to work on some great things on NP web/news since I started there more than three years ago but couldn’t be more excited to try something new.

Some personal news: Today is my last day at @Sportsnet.
I lucked into a dream gig 7 years ago, writing for our magazine. It's been a thrilling ride since. Grateful to have learned from the incredible writers and editors on our team. Sad to go. But looking forward to what's next.
