Daily editor’s successor unveiled ahead of July switchover

Andrew CampbellThe new editor of a regional daily has been appointed after Friday’s announcement that his predecessor would be leaving the role.

As previously reported on HTFP, Mark Thomas’s departure from the North Wales Daily Post was revealed after he decided to pursue “a number of new opportunities and projects”.

Andrew Campbell, currently print editor at the Daily Post’s Trinity Mirror sister daily the Liverpool Echo, will take over from Mark in July.

Andrew, pictured above left, joined Trinity Mirror in 1995 after working at The Citizen, Gloucester.

During his time as a reporter at The Citizen covered the Fred and Rose West crimes and investigation.

Following his move north he was embedded as an Echo reporter during NATO operations in Kosovo.

During his time in Liverpool Andrew has held the roles of investigations editor and deputy editor at the Echo, as well as assistant editor of the Daily Post.

He also spent six months as producer of the Channel One TV Station in Liverpool.

A Trinity Mirror statement reads: “Andrew has been a key figure in the implementations of both Newsroom 3.0 and Newsroom 3.1 and central to the Echo’s outstanding record as an award-winning title consistently among the industry’s best commercial performers over the last ten years.”

Until the end of 2013, Mark had been editor of the Liverpool Post in both its daily and weekly incarnations.

He then switched to the editor role at the Llandudno-based Daily Post at the beginning of 2014.
