Guardian editor-in-chief appointed

The Guardian has appointed Katharine Viner to the role of editor-in-chief.

Currently deputy editor of the Guardian and editor-in-chief of Guardian US, she will take up the role in the summer from incumbent Alan Rusbridger, who is to stand down after 20 years.

She will be the first woman to run the newspaper in its 194-year history.  Commenting on her appointment, Viner said: “Being editor-in-chief of the Guardian and Observer is an enormous privilege and responsibility, leading a first-class team of journalists revered around the world for outstanding reporting, independent thinking, incisive analysis and digital innovation."
