Belfast Telegraph - - NEWS | POLITICS -

THE Belfast Tele­graph to­day an­nounces the ap­point­ment of its new Group Po­lit­i­cal Edi­tor, Suzanne Breen.

Ms Breen (be­low) is the for­mer North­ern Edi­tor of the Sun­day Tri­bune and for­mer Se­nior North­ern Cor­re­spon­dent of the Ir­ish Times, work­ing for that pa­per for over a decade in Belfast and Dublin.

A multi award-win­ning jour­nal­ist, she has been seven times North­ern Ire­land CIPR news/fea­ture jour­nal­ist of the year, as well as for­mer Out­stand­ing Ir­ish Wo­man Jour­nal­ist of the Year.

Ms Breen is also a reg­u­lar con­trib­u­tor to the BBC, UTV, RTE, Chan­nel Four and other broad­cast me­dia.

Gail Walker, Edi­tor of the Belfast Tele­graph, said she was de­lighted to wel­come Ms Breen to head up “our un­ri­valled po­lit­i­cal cov­er­age both in print and on­line”.

She added: “I have long been an ad­mirer of Suzanne’s jour­nal­ism and I know that she will be an ex­cel­lent ad­di­tion to the se­nior team at the Belfast Tele­graph.

“She is one of the most re­spected jour­nal­ists in th­ese islands, with a for­mi­da­ble track record of break­ing ex­clu­sive sto­ries and pro­vid­ing ex­pert anal­y­sis.

“Hope­fully we will see the restora­tion of power-shar­ing at Stor­mont where Suzanne will no doubt be in her el­e­ment.”

Ms Breen, who will also con­trib­ute to the Belfast Tele­graph’s sis­ter ti­tle, Sun­day Life, is step­ping into a role pre­vi­ously held by her good friend, the late Liam Clarke.
