Charlotte Empey named EIC of Metro chain of freesheets

The pieces sure are moving about the magazine board. It has been confirmed that Charlotte Empey has been named editor-in-chief of the six editions of Metro, the free English language weekday paper owned in part by Torstar. She replaces Diane Rinehart, who left last month after 18 months in the job. According to a post on J-Source
Empey also replaced Rinehart in another editorial position back in 2003. Rinehart was editor of Homemakers at the time and, along with Homemakers publisher Carol Shea and Canadian Living publisher Debbie Gibson, found her position had been eliminated when Transcontinental Media appointed Empey (then editor of Canadian Living) editor of Homemakers and group publisher of both mags.
Empey had been associate dean of the School of Creative and Performing Arts at Toronto's Humber Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning before accepting the Metro job. She had, previous to Transcon, been editor of  Images and Health Watch. She was also the founding editor of Modern Woman.

Amid all the snarkiness about Chatelaine’s once and future editors, it is nice to see Charlotte’s face again. She is a great editor and and a great dame, and I wish her all the best in her new job. Still, check your sources about Images and HealthWatch. I don’t remember Charlotte ever heading up those mags.

The information came from Charlotte's own biography on the Humber alumni website.

Charlotte and I have a long history (over 30 years). It's wonderful to see this tenacious, reader-focused and imaginative editor back in print.
