DC Thomson Media has appointed a new editor of The Press and Journal.

Frank O’Donnell, currently editor of The Scotsman, is to take up the role of editor-in-chief of the publisher’s two Aberdeen newspapers later this year.

Mr O’Donnell became editor of Edinburgh-based The Scotsman in April 2017, having been a journalist for more than 25 years.

He will take charge of The P&J, the UK’s highest selling regional daily newspaper, and Evening Express in May.

As editor-in-chief, Mr O’Donnell will provide editorial vision for teams in Aberdeen and Inverness, to ensure the two titles maintain excellent delivery of local, relevant content.

Last night, Mr O’Donnell said: “I am excited to be joining DC Thomson Media in the role of editor-in-chief of Aberdeen.

“The Press and Journal and Evening Express are historic and trusted brands with a strong connection to their communities.

“This relationship is vital in the digital era as we develop a deeper partnership with our readers.

“I was attracted to this role by DC Thomson Media’s commitment to a sustainable digital future that will ensure these news brands thrive for generations to come.”

Mr O’Donnell succeeds Alan McCabe, who moved within DC Thomson Media to work on a Google-funded project aimed at creating a more sustainable future for the company.
