Fox News Digital has garnered record-setting page views in recent months, and the world’s largest English newspaper website has apparently taken notice.
DMG Media announced today that Noah Kotch has been named the new editor in chief of Daily Mail, leaving his current role as Fox News digital editor.
Prior to running FNC digital operation, Kotch was the founding publisher of Heat Street, chief content officer of Vocativ, and had a 5-year stint as a senior producer on the Today show.
Kotch will take on his new role as EIC in early July, and his new direct report is Martin Clarke, publisher of DailyMail.com/MailOnline and Metro.co.uk. Clarke also becomes publisher of DMG Media with additional responsibility for the Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday and Metro newspapers.
“We are delighted to announce Noah’s appointment,” said Clarke. “We have been very impressed with the transformation he has brought about at FoxNews.com over the past year, and we look forward to him building on the incredible success so far of DailyMail.com/MailOnline and growing our editorial operation, particularly in the US and beyond.”
‘I’m thrilled to join as brilliant an operation as DailyMail.com and look forward to helping it grow leaps and bounds,” added Kotch.
