The Globe and Mail's night editor Pat Brethour is joing the Brunswick News as its editor-in-chief. J-Source has the memos from both the Globe and Brunswick News.
Here is the memo from The Globe and Mail's editor-in-chief David Walmsley:
It is with mixed emotions The Globe announces the departure of Pat Brethour.
He leaves us on May 23 to become the Editor-in-Chief, Brunswick News. In this role, Patrick will be responsible for the strategic direction of the BNI Editorial Department, along with day-to-day management of all publications and online content for all devices and platforms.
It is a wonderful opportunity for Pat and we wish him well. We will miss his booming chuckle.
Pat has spent 18 years with us, rising in the ranks from summer student to technology editor, before moving to Alberta in 2002 to cover the energy megaboom. After four years he moved to Vancouver, joining the bureau as British Columbia Editor in late 2006, where he wrote a weekly column for ROB for several years, along with guiding overall news coverage. By mid-2012, Pat had headed back to Toronto and a position with Report on Business, where he became Deputy Editor.
