New editor ‘relishing challenge’ of building print and digital readerships

Natalie FahyA regional daily’s new editor says she is “relishing the challenge” of building a bigger readership both in print and online.

Natalie Fahy, pictured, has officially taken up her role as editor of the Nottingham Post and its Nottinghamshire Live sister website following the departure of Mike Sassi.

Mike announced before Christmas he was leaving his role, which he had held for six years.

In a piece setting out her vision for the Post and Nottinghamshire Live, Natalie said she was “now relishing the challenge of building a bigger readership for both”.

The 37-year-old added: “Each has its own strengths and together they provide unrivalled coverage of Nottinghamshire.

“I am conscious of the fact that in this fast, media-rich world, even established organisations like ours cannot be complacent and I aim to improve the service we give to both our digital audience and the many thousands of loyal newspaper readers.”

Natalie trained as a reporter on the Halesowen News and went on to work for the Richmond and Twickenham Times.

She then covered the Royal Courts of Justice for a London-based news agency before joining Express Newspapers.

She was UK correspondent for German newspaper Bild and then worked for Sky News on the digital desk before joining the Post in 2012 as digital editor.
