David Walmsley is replacing veteran staffer John Stackhouse as editor-in-chief of The Globe and Mail, effective March 24.

Walmsley (pictured) is returning to the national daily after spending the past 20 months as director of news content with the CBC, responsible for all coverage across its various delivery platforms.

Walmsley had spent six years with the Globe between 2006 and 2012, working his way up to managing editor before departing for the CBC. He has also held senior roles at the National Post and Toronto Star.

In a release, Globe publisher and CEO Phillip Crawley said that Walmsley arrives at a “pivotal” time for the newspaper industry. “David will continue to strengthen The Globe’s reputation for outstanding journalism, including attracting and growing great talent, and inspiring innovative thinking,” said Crawley.

Stackhouse has spent nearly all his professional career with the Globe since joining the national daily as a senior writer with Report on Business magazine in 1989. He spent nearly eight years as a foreign correspondent before joining its editor ranks as foreign editor in 2001.

Crawley said that Stackhouse played a role in several pivotal events for the publication, including its 2010 redesign and the launch of its paid subscription program, Globe Unlimited.
