The Australian has today announced a new media editor, appointing Sharri Markson to the role.
Markson, former editor of Bauer’s Cleo magazine, will start on February 17. She has also previously worked as chief of staff at The Sunday Telegraph and as a senior producer at Seven Network.
In 2012, Markson won a Walkley Award for a television report that exposed the NSW Government’s corrupt deal with the sole ethanol supplier in the state.
She replaces Nick Leys, who is joining the ABC as head of corporate communications after just two weeks in the role at The Australian.
