Six Canadian Business staffers, founding editor of MoneySense fired
Six staff members at Canadian Business and the founding editor-in-chief of MoneySense were fired yesterday. Sources within Rogers Publishing Inc. told Masthead that executive editor Scott Steele, features editor Andy Holloway, senior staff writer Sharda Prashad and staff writer Jeff Sanford, online managing editor Greg Enright, and photo researcher David Lee were all let go by CB, while Ian McGugan is no longer with MoneySense, a magazine he helped launched in 1999.

Suneel Khanna, senior director of communications at Rogers Publishing, confirmed that seven editorial jobs were lost.
The magazines are “strategically shifting focus,” Khanna said. “Effectively all the positions will be replaced.”

The shake-up follows the recent appointments of Ken Whyte and Steve Maich as publisher and editor-in-chief, respectively, and would seem to echo the drastic changes Whyte made at Maclean’s when he took over there in 2005.

Longtime Canadian Business publisher Deborah Rosser was fired in June, while CB editor-in-chief Joe Chidley was moved to
editor and associate publisher of the special projects unit at Maclean's and Canadian Business last month.
