You may have noticed that we’ve been looking for a new News Editor at CMG recently. Well that’s because Steve Thornton — who is our current News (and copy) Editor — is leaving CMG as of end of today to work full time at Cycle Canada magazine.
Though he will obviously be taking a significant drop in prestige and job satisfaction, Cycle Canada has been able to offer Steve a full time, fully paid gig which we understand is something that helps to pay bills, reduce stress and make life all the more bearable (we’ll have to try that sometime).
Steve has been at CMG since 2008 and during his tenure he has added an unusual spark of professionalism. He has also brought the daily news up several notches as well as find the wonderful and bizarre stories that make up your weekly dose of Friday Fudge.
As you can imagine, he will be sorely missed and we can only hope that he manages to install some of that professionalism and spark into Cycle Canada magazine. Or maybe not.
Good luck with that Steve and thanks for all the great work. Oh, and please clean out your desk because security will be by shortly to escort your sorry ass out of the building!
Cheers, Rob Harris
Editor and publisher
