The Sun on Sunday appoints Victoria Newton as editor

News UK has appointed Victoria Newton as editor of The Sun on Sunday.

Newton began her career at The Express before joining The Sun's showbiz team. She was later appointed as Los Angeles Correspondent, then edited Bizarre and was also deputy editor of the News of the World.

A major marketing campaign will herald changes in the look and content of The Sun on Sunday this weekend. Writer Tony Parsons will start his column and News UK said that ten to 12 journalists will be working solely on the Sunday edition of the paper. News UK described the changes as a "refresh".

David Dinsmore, who retains overall control of the 7-day Sun operation, said: "Victoria is ideally placed to build on the Sun's long-standing success and ensure our readers our amused, informed, provoked and championed every Sunday, as they are during the week. I am delighted to welcome her to this vital role."
