Media giant News Corp has announced changes to some of its editorial and broadcast teams.

Peter Gleeson (pictured above), editor of The Sunday Mail in Queensland, has been promoted to a new five-day on-air role with Sky News Australia, and to weekly columnist for The Courier Mail and News Corp’s national Sunday newspapers network.

Gleeson has been the editor of The Sunday Mail since 2013, and during that time has been a regular guest commentator on Sky News and weekend host of its late night national affairs program Heads Up.

He will continue his hosting role on Heads Up on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

Prior to The Sunday Mail, Gleeson was editor of the Gold Coast Bulletin as well as editor of the Townsville Bulletin.

As a result of Gleeson’s role change, Kelvin Healey, deputy editor of The Courier Mail, has been promoted to editor of The Sunday Mail in Queensland.

Healey has been deputy editor of The Courier-Mail for the past two years, and prior to that, was deputy editor of The Daily Telegraph.
