Former News of the World showbiz reporter Rav Singh is joining weekly magazine Reveal in the new role of assistant editor (celebrity).
Singh started his career on the Daily Star in 1996 before joining The Sun in 1998 and then the News of the World in 2000.
During his eight-year stint at the Sunday tabloid, he had 52 front-page splashes and won the 2004 British Press Award for showbusiness reporter of the year.
He left last November to go freelance.
Reveal editor Michael Butcher said: “He has a brilliant contacts book, he’s one of the best, most experienced operators in the business.”
In the last set of consumer magazine ABCs, covering the second half of 2008, Reveal’s average weekly circulation fell 17.2 per cent year on year to 270,014.
