I’m delighted to announce that Oliver Luft is joining Press Gazette on Monday as our new online news supremo.
He replaces Paul McNally – who has sensibly decided to ride out the recession in Monaco, where he has bagged a job working as a journalist on monthly English-language newspaper The Connexion.
Oliver Luft has made a name for himself over the last year working as a journalist for Media Guardian – breaking stories online, and contributing features to the print edition.
Before that he spent two years working as news editor of Journalism.co.uk. He also has plenty of hard news experience after cutting his teeth at the Newsteam press agency in Birmingham.
He’s a talented journalist with superb knowledge of the British journalism industry so I’m delighted to welcome him on board.
Ollie joins Press Gazette at a time when we have big plans to expand the website under new owners Progressive Media Group. I can’t divulge the details of that yet – but it is going to be big!
