The Tyee is looking for a new editor-in-chief as founding editor Dave Beers takes on a new role with the online magazine.

The new editor-in-chief will run the magazine’s editorial daily operations, while Beers will become the executive editor and will focus on strategic opportunities to expand B.C. magazine. Last year, The Tyee completed a fundraising campaign to help it expand nationally.

“The Tyee is in excellent financial shape, given the ongoing commitment of our investors, record levels of advertising revenue, and very successful fundraising,” Beers said in a post announcing his move. “This is a perfect time to add capacity and skills in house…. There's no shake-up underway here. Just a quiver of anticipation at what might be accomplished with new talent aboard.”

Applications for The Tyee editor-in-chief must be handed in July 5. Details here.
