Magazine EIC news: Legaré takes over enRoute; Andrusiecsko takes over at Briarpatch
Two very different EIC appointments in Canadian magazines:
- Jean-François Legaré is now the editor-in-chief of enRoute magazine, Air Canada's inflight. He will oversee the monthly Air Canada enRoute magazine (including sister publications, the Air Canada enRoute edition and the Air Canada enRoute Inflight Entertainment Guide), alongside the brand’s expansive digital platforms, events, and award programs. He replaces Ilana Weitzman, who was EIC for seven years and has now been promoted to become content director, Air Canada Media, and editorial director, enRoute. Legaré was for a time the editor-in-chief of fashion and beauty brand Clin d’œil, where he managed the print magazine, iPad application, website overhaul, events and commercial ventures for the magazine before returning to enRoute in 2014.
- Tanya Andrusiecsko has been named as editor of Briarpatch magazine starting in September. She comes to Briarpatch with a background in feminist political sociology and Indigenous studies and a fire in her belly for fostering radical political discussions and independent journalism. Tanya moved to Saskatoon from Toronto in 2010 and settled into the warm and welcoming community she met through the leadership program Next Up and the feminist summer camp that she founded in 2014. Tanya is currently wrapping up a Master’s dissertation on the Swedish feminist party at the London School of Economics (LSE), but outside of the 9-5, she can be found scouting pizza, listening to podcasts, sitting in gardens, and catching up on Twitter.
