Liz Nice named new editor of East Anglian Daily Times – Journalism News from HoldtheFrontPage
A magazine boss has been unveiled as the new editor of two sister dailies based in her hometown.
Prior to its merger with Newsquest, Liz had worked for Archant for nine years and has most recently served as head of content for the group’s county magazines.
She will retain responsibility for Norfolk magazine, Suffolk magazine and Let’s Talk magazine in her new role.
Liz, pictured, said: “I’m really looking forward to working with the Suffolk news team again. My first job in journalism was as a reporter on the East Anglian Daily Times and the then Evening Star back in 1992.
“When I returned to Archant in 2014, as the EADT’s managing editor, I really enjoyed being back on my hometown papers.
“I’m also chuffed to bits to be the EADT’s first woman editor in its 148-year history.
“I’ve worked on a lot of newspapers and magazines in my time but when I told my 85-year-old father the news at the weekend, I saw the pride in his eyes I’ve waited a lifetime for.”
Liz’s appointment comes after the departure of Brad Jones and she will officially take over the Ipswich-based dailies on Monday.
Vincent Boni, acting managing director for Newsquest Eastern Counties, said: “Along with the recent appointment of Richard Porritt as regional editor for Norfolk, we have an exceptional senior editorial management team.”
