STV has appointed David Milne as executive editor of STV Local, its online and mobile news and listings initiative.
Milne joins from Newsquest‘s Herald and Times Group in Glasgow where he was previously group digital editor.
Prior to this he was deputy editor of the Sunday Herald and had previously been assistant and news editor of the Sunday Herald.
In his new role, Milne will be responsible for rolling out the STV Local network of sites across Scotland, delivering on the broader editorial objectives of the business and forging partnerships with local businesses and communities.
STV Local, which will launch in a pilot area later this summer, is a network of community based hyper-local sites which the broadcaster hopes will eventually cover the whole of Scotland.
