Maria McGeoghan is to become the first female editor of the Manchester Evening News (MEN), its new owner Trinity Mirror has announced.

McGeoghan joined the MEN as assistant editor in 1998 having previously held senior roles at the Liverpool Echo.

She was appointed senior editor in 2006, and has recently been working as acting editor for the last six months.

She will also be editor-in-chief of the MEN Media weekly newspapers.

McGeoghan said: "I'm absolutely delighted to have been appointed editor of the Manchester Evening News. This is a great paper with a fantastic team of people who work very hard to set the news agenda in Greater Manchester.

"I'm also very proud of our weekly titles which continue to serve their communities so well. This is a very exciting time for our newspapers and I'm looking forward to being part of the team driving for a successful future," she added.

GMG recently sold of its regional media business, including the Manchester Evening News, to Trinity Mirror, in a deal worth £44.8m.
