David Kermode appointed editor of Daybreak

The editor of 5 News, David Kermode, has been named as the new editor of ITV breakfast show Daybreak.

The Guardian reports that Kermode will replace Ian Rumsey, who announced he was stepping down from the role in July.

The news comes one year after the launch of Daybreak, which replaced GMTV when it was launched in September 2010.

Today’s Guardian report said Kermode will report to ITV Studios controller of daytime Fiona Keenaghan and work closely with Daybreak executive producer Karl Newton.

Before becoming editor of 5 News Kermode was editor of BBC1’s Breakfast between 2004 and 2007.
