Sasha Emmons is the new editor-in-chief of Today’s Parent. Emmons, who is a freelance editor and consultant, will join the Rogers Media publication on Feb. 10. She will step in for Karine Ewart, who joined Chatelaine as its editor-in-chief on Jan. 13.
Emmons’ work has appeared in Walmart Live Better, TodaysParent.com, iVillage.com, Better Homes & Gardens and TheNest.com.
“Sasha has everything you could want from an editor-in-chief in today’s media landscape, including outstanding vision and creativity,” said Steve Maich, senior vice-president and general manager of publishing at Rogers Media. “She is extremely comfortable and enthusiastic with the opportunities presented by digital distribution of our stories and other content. And she has a warmth and charisma that makes her a natural leader and spokesperson for Today’s Parent.”
The appointment is the latest in a shuffle at Rogers Media, including Cameron Williamson joining Flare, the promotion of John Intini as editor-in-chief of Sportsnet and former Sportsnet editor-in-chief Steve Maich to his management position at Rogers Media.
