Torontoist editor Hamutal Dotan will join The Globe and Mail as its focus editor.

She takes over from Julie Traves, who has joined the National Post as its deputy editor. In her new role, Dotan will be responsible for the newspaper’s long-form journalism coverage.

Dotan will stay with Torotoist for the Toronto mayoral election and tweeted she would miss covering #TOpoli.

According to her LinkedIn profile, Dotan joined Torontoist in September 2008 and rose up the ranks to become the editor. She has also won a National Magazine Award and appears on CBC as Metro Morning’s City Hall political analyst.

“She’ll be bringing her intelligence, energy and curiosity to the newsroom starting Nov. 3,” said Gabe Gonda, head of features and weekend, in the memo.
