Dinsmore to succeed Mohan as editor of The Sun

Dominic Mohan has stepped down as editor of The Sun after four years in the job. He will be replaced by David Dinsmore, the News International director of operations and former Sun acting managing editor, who will take over on Monday 24 June.

Mohan is moving to a newly created role as strategic advisor across Europe for the new News Corporation. He will report directly to Robert Thomson in New York.

Dinsmore has been director of operations at News International since October, having worked his first shift on The Sun at the age of 22.

"There is no better job in journalism than editing Britain's most popular paper," Dinsmore said. "I relish the opportunity to build on the historic strengths of the Sun, and harness new digital opportunities to offer our loyal readers more than ever."

Mike Darcey, the chief executive of News International, added: "These are exciting times for our company, with new leadership on all our titles and an Executive team that has been transformed in recent years.

"We will join the new News Corp next week in a strong, determined and confident position and I have no doubt that we will secure a sustainable future for the world-class journalism we all cherish."
