Return To Cooke Mountain

The Star (and its website) will have a new editor come March 1: Michael Cooke, current Editor-in-Chief of the Chicago Sun-Times, former Editor-in-Chief of the New York Daily News and Vancouver Province, former Managing Editor of the Edmonton Journal and Montreal Gazette, and alleged Cooke Monster. Cooke worked at the Star back in the mid-’70s as the paper’s Assistant National Editor, and, according to the Star‘s publisher, John Cruickshank, “as long as I’ve known him he has dreamed of coming back.” No word yet on whether Cooke will shortly be replaced with an unpaid intern.
