Two Sunday newspaper editors join PCC board

Sunday Telegraph editor Ian MacGregor and Sunday Mirror editor Tina Weaver have joined the board of the Press Complaints Commission.

MacGregor replaces former Observer editor Roger Alton and Weaver joins following the appointment today of Daily Mail editor Paul Dacre to chair the Editors’ Code of Practice Committee.

Chairman of the PCC Sir Christopher Meyer said: ‘While the PCC is independently run and has a majority of lay members on its board, it is essential for its credibility within the industry – and for the quality of our rulings – that editors take part in the system.

‘I am therefore very pleased that two people as well-regarded in the press as Ian MacGregor and Tina Weaver have been appointed to the commission.

“Between them they have great experience of different parts of the press, something which will help keep our adjudications well-informed and relevant in the era of media convergence.”
