Deputy editor of The Courier-Mail, Kelvin Healey, has been appointed deputy editor of The Daily Telegraph as part of string of internal changes announced by News Corp Australia.
The appointment sees Mr Healey reunited with his former editor at The Courier-Mail, Chris Dore, who became editor of the Sydney paper in December last year.
Mr Healey started in his new role this week.
Mr Dore and Mr Healey produced an eye-catching news agenda during their time in Queensland.
Their editorship saw The Courier-Mail win the Newspaper of the Year in 2014 at both the PANPA awards and the News Corp Australia awards.
Mr Healey will be replaced by the editor of the NT News, Rachel Hancock, who will become deputy editor of The Courier-Mail and Sunday Mail. Her appointment will be effective from Monday, May 30.
Ms Hancock will be replaced by Matt Williams, the paper’s deputy editor and editor of the Sunday Territorian, effective from Monday, May 23.
News Corp Australasia executive chairman Michael Miller praised the ability of the three appointees.
“Each of them has made major and lasting contributions to the mastheads they’ve worked for and have led newsrooms to great success. I have no doubt they all will go on to even greater heights,” he said.
