Quebecor Media Inc.’s Sun Media Corp. unit has appointed David Akin as Sun Media national bureau chief in Ottawa.
Akin’s 25-year career spans print and television, including CTV National News and The Globe and Mail, where he received a National Newspaper Award citation of merit. Also a member of the inaugural staff of National Post, Akin most recently was Canwest News Service national affairs correspondent.
Akin also pioneered digital platforms. A blogger for almost 10 years, his On The Hill is among Canada’s most-read political blogs.
Quebecor Media and Sun Media said outgoing national bureau chief Kathleen Harris “will continue to play an important role in the Sun Media National Bureau.”
