A weekly newspaper editor has moved to a new role on the transformation team of regional publisher Local World.
In the role, she will run and develop the new Familybook and Famous Faces channels which will be launched by the publisher, working alongside designers and developers to ensure all content and commercial opportunities are exploited.
The company now plans to appoint an acting editor for the Journal to cover Chloe’s secondment.
Chloe said: “I’m really excited about being part of the transformation team. This is an excellent opportunity to be part of something truly creative and ground breaking.”
The Familybook channel will be an online announcement site, while Famous Faces will feature celebrity news and gossip.
However her strengths in online and social media will add greatly to the transformation team.”
Chloe was named as editor at the Journal in March last year, stepping up from being chief reporter, and since then she has been named Woman of the Future in Arts, Media and Culture in an annual awards scheme held by Caspian Media.
Three Local World newspaper centres – Derby, Cambridge and Exeter – are heading the transformation project for the publisher to explore new content ideas.
