Malcolm Kirk named president of The Canadian Press

 Malcolm Kirk, formerly executive vice-president of digital media with Postmedia Network Inc., has been appointed president of the Canadian Press, the news agency announced.
Kirk – a veteran of newspaper front offices in Vancouver, Calgary and San Francisco – replaces Jim Jennings and Neil Campbell, the co-architects of a strategic review last year that culminated in their being named co-presidents last September. 
Mr. Jennings and Mr. Campbell joined the troubled news service as emissaries of a new ownership group that includes the parent companies of The Globe and Mail, the Toronto Star and Montreal’s La Presse newspapers.
The pair presided over a broad restructuring that brought with it staff reductions and a thorough search for new sources of revenue – as well as the return in May of Postmedia’s stable of newspapers after a five-year absence.
