Narcity Media Names Ali Millington Executive Editor, Canada
Narcity Media, Canada’s leading Millennial and Gen Z publisher, is pleased to announce the addition of Ali Millington, an alum of blogTO and Insider, as Executive Editor, Canada.
“Narcity is proud to welcome Alison to lead our Canadian editorial team,” Chuck Lapointe, Narcity Media founder, and CEO said. “The investments we have made in our local journalism in the last two years and the traction that we are getting from our readers shows it’s the right time to put our foot on the gas in Canada. Ali is the perfect addition to our team to lead us through this acceleration phase.”
As Executive Editor, Millington will be responsible for overseeing the editorial teams across Narcity Media’s Canadian editions, including Narcity Canada, Narcity Québec, and MTL Blog. She will be focused on leading Narcity’s expansion to new Canadian markets.
“I’m thrilled to be joining Narcity at such a pivotal time of growth and creativity,” she said. “As we continue to rapidly expand and recruit talented journalists across the country, I believe we're well placed to become the go-to destination for Canadian Millennial and Gen Z readers looking to be both informed and inspired.”
Having lived in both her native Ontario, Canada, and London, UK, Millington has worked for a range of Millennial-focused digital publishers with distinct voices, gaining valuable insight into how to reach audiences on both a global and local level.
Most recently, as Managing Editor of blogTO, Millington was able to bring her expertise to her home country and bring the local site to its highest monthly readership to date.
As the inaugural Lifestyle Editor of Business Insider UK, Millington worked her way up to Senior and then Deputy Editor. Millington ultimately led a team of writers and editors covering everything from under-the-radar travel and celebrity news to influencers and the royal family, resulting in her being named Insider’s UK Editor of the Year in 2018.
