Mr Gleeson will appear on Sky News five days per week, representing Queensland and Northern Australia across several programs. This will not be his first venture into the broadcast space, having appeared regularly on the channel as a guest commentator and weekend host of its late night national affairs program, Heads Up.
Mr Gleeson will also write a weekly column for The Courier Mail and for News’ Sunday masthead network.
In a note to staff, News Corp Australia executive chairman Michael Miller said the role reflected the changing nature of journalism, “combining Peter’s strong newspaper pedigree with a broadcast platform”.
Mr Healey has been a deputy editor at News since 2014, with a stint at The Daily Telegraph and two at The Courier Mail.
Both will formally begin their roles on Monday, July, 23.
