Graham Scott appointed editor of
This Magazine

A new editor has been appointed at This Magazine, the hardy independent with the left inclination. Graham F. Scott, who has been the magazine's columns editor, assumes the chair being vacated after a little more than two years by Jessica Johnston. She is leaving in mid August to work as a freelance writer and editor while pursuing a master's degree at Ryerson University.

Scott has been a busy freelance writer and editor for the past three years including a year as This Magazine’s columns editor. During this time Graham has also worked as an associate editor with Canadian Business, and as assistant editor of Precedent magazine. Prior to that he was news editor, and then editor in chief, of The Varsity, the University of Toronto’s student newspaper. He holds a bachelor’s degree in history and American studies from University of Toronto.

“I am delighted that we have been able to recruit someone of Graham’s ability to the magazine,” says publisher Lisa Whittington-Hill in a release.

[Fair disclosure: Graham Scott is my son.]

This is maybe the best full disclosure note I have ever seen.
