Daily Sport Appointment for Morse

A former news editor of the Daily Record and Edinburgh Evening News, and newsdesk executive at the Press and Journal, has been appointed editor-in-chief of the Daily Sport and Sunday Sport newspapers.

Murray Morse succeeds Barry McIlheney, who has been promoted to group editorial director at the paper’s publishers, Sport Media Group.

Morse was most recently editor of the Cambridge Evening News, but resigned in April amid claims management wanted to appoint a group editor above him. It led to staff at the paper passing a vote of ‘no confidence’ in management.
