UTV has appointed Belfast journalist Darwin Templeton as its new executive editor of news.
Templeton, who has more than 21 years of experience in journalism, will be responsible for the media company’s news output in Northern Ireland.
Templeton, who has also worked in the UTV news room, said: ‘I am delighted to once again be working within UTV’s very strong news team.
“As well as being the most watched news by far in Northern Ireland, UTV Live’s ratings are almost double that of the ITV Network regional news average. My challenge is to maintain and build upon that success in the coming months”
