Editor Mitch crosses the ditch

Australian media executive Mitchell Murphy has been appointed managing editor of Fairfax Media’s two New Zealand Sunday newspapers.

Murphy, 42, is currently managing editor of Fairfax Digital (Queensland) and oversaw the launch of the award-winning brisbanetimes.com.au website last year.

The managing editor position covers the Sunday Star-Times and Sunday News titles. Murphy’s role will include the editorship of the Star-Times – left vacant when Cate Brett resigned in August after five years to work with the Law Commission – while Chris Baldock remains editor of the Sunday News.

Murphy, who is part of PANPA’s Editorial Advisory Group, takes up the new role at early in November.
