New editor appointed for Scottish daily

A new editor has been appointed for the Edinburgh Evening News after Tom Little’s departure for a council PR role.

Frank O’Donnell moves up from the position of assistant editor and group head of news for sister titles The Scotsman and Scotland on Sunday.

His appointment was announced to staff today by Andrew Richardson, managing director of The Scotsman Publications Ltd.

Said Andrew: “I am confident that Frank has the personal qualities and experience to be successful as editor, and would like you to join me in congratulating him on his new appointment.”

Frank has been with Johnston Press-owned TSPL for 12 years and has held a variety of roles.

Tom stood down as editor after three years to become head of policy and public affairs for City of Edinburgh Council.
