Christie Blatchford is leaving The Globe and Mail to become the new national columnist for Postmedia News. Starting June 13, she will file stories for publication across the Postmedia chain of daily newspapers, as well as regular columns for the National Post.

“We are thrilled to welcome Christie to Postmedia,” said Paul Godfrey President and CEO in a release. “Christie Blatchford is a game changer in the world of journalism and we’re overjoyed to have her playing on our team. People who love her, and even those few who don’t, always read her.”

Here’s what Blatchford had to say, also in the press release:

“I’m glad to be back in the fold. It feels like my natural home. I never stopped reading National Post every day, I think it’s the prettiest and best written newspaper in the country. I’m really happy to be back.”
