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.
