the Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning. She has previously worked as editor of Homemakers and group publisher of it and Canadian Living. She was also editor of Images and Health Watch and founding editor of Modern Woman.

Metro group publisher Bill McDonald says he met Empey when he ran the sales team at Chatelaine and she was with Modern Woman. “The style with which she conducted business back then is just the style we’re looking for as we move forward with our business today,” he says. “She is a very collaborative personality who has done a very good job of getting to the heart of what her readers want to see.”

McDonald says Empey’s arrival at Metro will mean an improvement in the quality of content that readers see in the paper. “There will be an improvement as it appeals to our demographic of 18 to 39 year-olds,” he says. “There will be some adjustments in the content, in the columnists and how we approach certain features.”
