Local updates from the Media Roundup

Here are a few select updates from today’s Media Roundup:

  • Starting this week, Elise Stolte will move from the City Hall beat to become the new city columnist at the Edmonton Journal. “It’s a huge challenge and I’m hoping you’ll all stay with me, debate with me, send me tips and ideas on this journey,” Stolte tweeted.
  • Paige Parsons will move from the courthouse to City Hall to fill Elise Stolte’s position. “I’m excited to jump right in,” she tweeted.
  • Keith Gerein is the Journal’s new provincial columnist. “I appreciate all the messages I’ve received,” he tweeted in response to the news. “Even the critical ones.”
  • CFCW Music Director Larry Donohue has announced he will hang up his headphones at the end of the year. He has been with the station for 35 years.
  • Cam Tait says the ATCO Edmonton Sun Christmas Charity Auction is up to 223 items. The goal is “to collect 250 items and raise $135,000 for the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton, Adopt-a-Teen and Catholic Social Services.” The auction starts on October 22.
