According to The Advertiser, Mr Tallon, also a former deputy editor of the Sunday Mail, will be replacing current editor Peter Judd, who is moving to a national role with News Ltd.

Mr Judd has been editor of the Geelong Advertiser for 14 years, and News Ltd chairman and chief executive John Hartigan told the Advertiser: “He is a remarkable editorial executive and I am delighted that he has agreed to step into a new senior position in our company where his journalistic leadership and thinking can have an even broader impact,” he said.

Mr Tallon told the Geelong Advertiser he was looking forward to his new role.
“My challenge is to expand the lead in innovation established by Peter across all platforms,” he said.
