BREAKING NEWS: Tonia Cowan will leave her post as graphics director of The Toronto Star to join The Globe and Mail's visual operation as graphics editor beginning Monday, May 28.

Check out details over on the still-fresh-from-the-vine SND.org/canadablog. (Yes, this is a soft-launch, of sorts, to a special new effort from SND's Region 9 and 10 -- but The Blog can't deny the freshness of this news and has to let the cat outta the bag on this one. Consider it sort of the Canadian-cousin-of-The-Blog, if you will). Tonia has worked in New York and Toronto. Her work has been recognized by the Society for News Design and Malofiej among many others. She's also created several graphics for Charles Hanley's Pulitzer Prize winning No Gun Ri story.

Congrats, Tonia! (And congrats, Globe & Mail!)

Tonia is one of the coolest people I have had the opportunity to meet and hang out with in this entire industry. She's an absolute sweetheart, and I don't throw that term around casually, either! So congrats, Tonia!

And congrats to all of Canada and kudos to the good folks in Regions 9 and 10 for getting their own regional blog started! We're gettin' there -- soon every SND region will have its own blog to complement the Update Blog!

Fiercely talented, fiercely loyal. I hope the G&M realizes what a gem they've hired.
