Caroline Connell leaving as editor in chief of Today's Parent

Staff at Today's Parent were told last Friday that editor Caroline Connell is leaving her post, somewhat abruptly, at the end of next week. No word given on the reasons for her departure. 

Connell has been a long-time employee at Rogers Publishing having joined
Chatelaine as a senior editor in 1992 and being promoted to  managing editor in 1997. She moved over to Today's Parent in 2002 as senior editor,  was promoted to executive editor in 2003 and in 2006 was promoted to editor in chief of the Today's Parent Group, replacing Linda Lewis, who had moved to be the editor of Transcontinental Media's More magazine. 

Connell was named the Canadian Society of Magazine Editors (CSME) editor of the year in 2009.

A terrific, thoughtful and principled editor. A significant loss for Rogers.

Wouldn't it be fascinating if Ms. Connell left to spend more time with her family? And, does it disturb anyone that whoever succeeds her will certainly be spending less time with hers?

Will we ever know why Ms. Connell left? Push, shove? Will she be good enough to reply honestly when asked by Masthead, or whomever? Or does her severance tie her tongue? We'll see...Or maybe not.
