New Editor in the West

THE West Australian, in one of the most anticipated editorial appointments in the region, has selected former News Ltd journalist Brett McCarthy as its new editor.

McCarthy, 42, was previously a six-year editor of The Sunday Times – another Perth newspaper. He left the role in 2007 to work with his wife in their small business.

Editor-in-Chief Bob Cronin said he was the “right age for the job” and had the necessary “skills” and “work ethic”.

Mr McCarthy spent five years earlier in the decade working as an editor for the Sydney-based Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph.
