Eoin Brannigan appointed new editor-in-chief of Belfast Telegraph
Editor of Irish Daily Star will oversee INM’s ‘Bel Tel’ and Sunday Life titles
Eoin Brannigan: ‘Huge honour’ to lead INM’s Belfast titles.
Mr Brannigan has since 2017 been the editor of the Irish Daily Star, the newspaper that is 50 per cent owned by INM. He joined the Star 23 years ago as a member of the sports desk, later becoming sports editor and senior deputy editor.
The Dublin native will take charge at what INM called “a crucial time” for the 150-year-old Belfast Telegraph, which will launch an online paywall next month following a similar move at the Irish Independent and Sunday Independent.
“Being appointed editor-in-chief for Belfast is a huge honour for me,” Mr Brannigan said.
