Archant London has appointed former Norwich Evening News editor Bob Crawley to a new position of editorial director in a move which the company says will "help underpin expansion plans for its portfolio of 29 weekly newspapers and around 30 local community websites."
Crawley, currently managing director of Archant Dialogue, has edited a number of weekly titles, two evening newspapers - Archant Norfolk’s Norwich Evening News and the Peterborough Evening Telegraph - and launched EDP24 and Pinkun.com.
Enzo Testa, Archant London managing director, said “We are delighted that Bob is joining the Archant London team, his wealth of experience in newspapers, magazines and digital, will underpin the expansion plans we have for London.”
