Toronto Life
has appointed Ken Hunt as its new publisher, effective January 30, 2015. Hunt will succeed David Hamilton, who has held the position since 2011. Hamilton will continue to work with the publication developing projects of special interest, including the brand’s City Parks initiative.

“I’d like to thank Doug Knight and Tony Gagliano, Executive Chairman and CEO of St. Joseph Communications, for their confidence in bringing me into Toronto Life and for their tremendous support,” Hamilton said. “I have enjoyed working with the incredibly talented and enthusiastic team of people at the magazine; it has been very rewarding and a lot of fun. I believe I’m leaving the brand stronger than ever and, while there are certainly challenges facing media today, I know that Toronto Life will continue to grow and excel as it has for almost 50 years – yes, Toronto Life will be 50 in 2016!”

Hunt joined the St. Joseph Communications Media Group in 2011 when it acquired the Torontoist from him and his partners. He has spent the past two years as vice-president of digital, across the company’s full range of magazines and digital properties.

“New technologies, new platforms, new media habits have opened up tremendous opportunity for Toronto Life to find new and innovative ways to serve the needs of our city,” Hunt said. “I am thrilled to take on that challenge and to build on the award-winning journalistic standards of the magazine, the growth of our digital operations and the appeal of the many events we have introduced to the city.”

Toronto Life currently has more than 600,000 print magazine readers and a digital audience exceeding 1.2 million.
