From J-Sourse: David Walmsley will leave his post as managing editor of The Globe and Mail to become CBC’s director of news content.
While Walmsley has been at The Globe since 2006, the move marks a return to the national broadcaster for him. Prior to his time at The Globe, he held the role of managing editor of CBC News Ottawa and before that, executive producer of newsgathering for CBC News.
"CBC News is a world-class outfit, to which I am delighted to be returning," Walmsley said in a CBC release.
"Its commitment to newsgathering, at home and abroad, and its digital
expansion convey the ambitions of this organization and determination to
adapt for the future, and I am thrilled to be a part of it."
A memo to staff from editor-in-chief John Stackhouse described Walmsley's accomplishments during his time at The Globe,
which included handling coverage of the Afghan war and multiple
national and provincial elections, earning recognition for him and the
newspaper as seen in Michener nominations and National Newspaper Awards.
“For many of us, David was both sage and guru, a man of both soothing
calm and relentless passion for journalism. And then there's his wit
and Irish charm,” Stackhouse wrote in the memo. “I, personally, will
miss his profound daily insight on our people and our work.”
Walmsley’s departure from The Globe has set off a number of changes in senior management.
Replacing Walmsley as managing editor will be Elena Cherney. Cherney
has been, until now, the newspaper’s Report on Business editor, and is
described by Stackhouse in a separate memo to staff as a “natural leader
-- an enthusiastic supporter of our journalists, a moral compass for
every newsroom she touches.” Cherney has previously worked as a reporter
for The Montreal Gazette, the National Post and The Wall Street Journal, and was managing editor of ROB before moving into the editor's role.
