My former Calgary Herald colleague, Don Martin, has left the National Post – and, I presume, the Herald – to become the new host of Power Play.
That’s good news for CTV, but not so great for Postmedia. The Post’s John Ivison is a gifted writer with an acerbic wit, but – last time I checked – John was one person. He can’t cover the entire Hill, as a columnist, all on his own. I think Postmedia will need to sign up someone else for North of the Queensway columnar duties, but what do I know.
In any event, big congrats to Don. I miss sparring with Powers on CTV’s news channel, but he’ll be Prime Minister of Newfoundland in a few weeks’ time, so that’s that.
