Guardian deputy features editor Sam Wollaston has been appointed the title’s television critic, writes Dominic Ponsford.
Wollaston started his career on The Guardian features desk in 1995 before becoming music editor. He became motoring editor in 1996 and was promoted to deputy features editor in 1999.
Features editor Ian Katz said: “As deputy features editor Sam has been responsible for some of G2’s finest moments over the past few years, including creating our pub quiz dream team and suspending Tim Dowling in a Perspex box before David Blaine got into his.
I’m sure he’ll bring the same flair, style and wit to his new role as The Guardian’s TV critic.”
