Former News of the World editor Phil Hall has joined the WENN (World Entertainment News Network)
agency as a non-executive director.
Hall, who also operates his PHA (Phil Hall Associates) is a former editor-in-chief of Hello! magazine and editorial director of development for Trinity Mirror.
CEO Lloyd Beiny said: “Phil is one of the UK’s most experienced news
men and we are overjoyed he has accepted our offer to lend his talents
to WENN. His vast knowledge of the media will be put to good use as
WENN continues its development. “
Beiny added: “WENN has been
around for some 16 years now and thanks in part to the seemingly
ceaseless demand for celebrity news and photos, the past five years has
seen WENN triple in size. I have some interesting developments planned
for WENN including some acquisitions which may raise a few eyebrows and
I hope Phil will play a significant part in bringing those deals to
