Doug Knight announces retirement from St. Joseph Media

Douglas Knight, the president of St. Joseph Media, the publisher of, among other things, Toronto Life, Fashion Magazine, Wedding Bells, Where Magazine and the website Torontoist. is retiring July 4. He has been with the company since 2006 and is chair of Magazines Canada. In 2015 he was named to the Order of Canada for his services to the arts community and as a media publisher.

He was one of the principal drivers behind this year's creation of Canadian Magazine Awards/Grands prix du magazine, in collaboration with Magazines Canada; the new awards hope to displace the 40-year-old National Magazine Awards. 
Knight said in a statement published by the Globe and Mail that he was leaving the company “to retire from the management trenches, to carve out some time to think about where and how I might devote my energies for the next ten years.” He added: “It has also been a privilege and a delight since returning to Canada in 2006 to have spent time in every province and territory of the country.”
He had been publisher and CEO of the Financial Post and later publisher and CEO of the Toronto Sun and had moved to New York in 2000 where he created a media acquisition consultancy that oversaw the purchase of a number of major metropolitan Spanish-language dailies, including New York’s El Diario.
