John Intini has been named editor-in-chief of Sportsnet magazine. Editor since last September, Intini takes over the role previously held by Steve Maich before he was named senior vice-president and general manager of publishing at Rogers Media. Maich made the announcement of Intini's appointment.
"As the sports and publishing industries continue to evolve, having someone with John's knowledge and passion at the helm is crucial in helping the brand thrive," said Maich [in a release]. "John has been a key contributor to Sportsnet's growth since day one, and I'm confident that under his leadership the magazine will continue to reach new levels of success and will engage, inform and entertain readers like never before."
Sportsnet was launched in 2011 and Intini was deputy editor from the start. He had previously been managing editor of Macleans.ca and then senior editor of Maclean's, where he had worked for 11 years in various writing and editing roles.
