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

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.
