Trinity Mirror has announced that the Daily Mirror and Sunday Mirror are to move to a seven day publishing model.
The seven day organisation across the two titles is enabled through the company's multi-million pound investment in the ContentWatch editorial system. The new structure will ensure that their newsroom is fully equipped to achieve the company's multi-media publishing strategy across the newspapers, online, mobile and new e-editions for tablet devices.
Lloyd Embley has been appointed editor of the Daily Mirror and Sunday Mirror with immediate effect. Embley was previously editor of The People and will continue to report to Mark Hollinshead, Managing Director Nationals.
Two new senior editorial roles have been created with an editor for the Daily Mirror (weekdays) and a weekend editor of the Mirror which combines the editorship of the Daily Mirror on Saturday with that of the Sunday Mirror. Both roles will report to Lloyd Embley. These appointments, together with a new editor for The People, will be announced shortly.
As a consequence of these changes the roles of editor Daily Mirror and editor Sunday Mirror have been made redundant and therefore Richard Wallace and Tina Weaver will leave the company with immediate effect.
Mark Hollinshead, Managing Director Nationals said: 'I'm delighted to appoint Lloyd to the position of Editor of the Daily and Sunday Mirror. He is an accomplished editor who has done a first class job on improving the performance and profile of The People having spent several years on the Daily Mirror in a senior executive role.
'Both Richard and Tina leave with our best wishes for the future and our thanks for the extremely valuable contribution they have made to the Daily Mirror and Sunday Mirror during their tenure as respective Editors.'
