The New York Daily News has hired a replacement for Scott Cohen, its Digital Editor who left last week. Capital New York reports that Colin Myler has brought a fellow Brit aboard: Ted Young, formerly the editor of the Daily Mail’s website, will be the Daily News’ new web editor.
“I am thrilled that a journalist of Ted’s outstanding ability is joining us to guide our expansion plans for our online operation, both locally and nationally,” Myler said in a memo obtained by Capital New York. “I know he is looking forward to working with the great team of journalists who have done so much to establish such a successful site.”
Young is expected to start in June.
